Free Digital Magazine Subscriptions From the Library

Posted By on Thu, Jun 20, 2013 at 4:00 PM

If you're a tablet user paying for magazine subscriptions, take note: The Pima County Library is now using a service to provide us magazines for free.

Announcement from those library revolutionaries:

Imagine having your own personal library of your favorite magazines ready to read on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. For free!

Pima County Public Library (PCPL) is making it happen with Zinio, a new service that is now available to all PCPL cardholders.

With Zinio, you can access, download, and read the Library’s collection of online magazines from cover to cover. Whether you’re inside or outside the Library, Zinio gives you the full magazine experience as if you were holding the paper copy right in your hands.

PCPL’s Zinio service offers:
· Full color digital copies of 196 popular magazine titles, including 32 Spanish-language titles.
· Unlimited 24/7 access to magazines.
· Audio and video interactive features for many titles.
· Magazines don’t check back in; they’re yours for as long as you want.

“Reading magazines will never be the same,” said Jennifer Caldwell, PCPL’s Electronic Resources Librarian. “Zinio will probably be one of the most popular digital services that the Library offers for our patrons. It’s fun, easy to use, and all you need is a library card.”

To use Zinio, you need to create a library Zinio account and a Zinio.com account. Instructions can be found at www.library.pima.gov, and Library cards are available at all 27 PCPL locations.
