Digital Magazines!

2 Aug

We’ve got a new service and can’t wait for you to try it out!

Digital magazines! Yep, thanks to the Library of Virginia, you now have the opportunity to read dozens of magazines on your computer, smartphone and tablet for FREE from the library.

Zinio  is a company that has been offering paid subscriptions to digital magazines for years. They offer a wide variety of cover-to-cover, full digital editions of popular magazines, which are current and released at the same time as their print editions. Some magazines even contain bonus materials that you can’t get in print, like animated diagrams, music, or video. They have apps for most mobile devices (smartphones/tablets) and computers so you can read your magazines just about anywhere you like.

The Library of Virginia and RBdigital (a division of longtime library friend Recorded Books) are now able to make selected Zinio digital magazines available for free to public library patrons across Virginia, including those in Henrico! We subscribe to many digital magazines through Zinio and make them available for you to check out for free through our Digital Magazines site. Check out as many issues as you want, and keep them as long as you like. There are no expiration dates.

Interested? Want to get started? Great! We’ve written some instructions that should help. For more information go here.

We hope you enjoy this new service!
