Have you ever wished you had a magazine to read on your mobile device while waiting to board the train, or even on the plane when you have no Internet access? Why buy one at the station or airport when you can have one for free?
Welcome to Zinio, a new part of our e-Living campaign for library members. Choose from about 40 magazines to read immediately online, or you can download and read later when you’re not connected to the Internet. Some of the titles we offer are Consumer Reports, Cosmopolitan, Discover, Esquire, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Harvard Business Review, Ladies Home Journal, National Geographic, Newsweek, Popular Science, Prevention, Rolling Stone, Seventeen, US Weekly, and Weight Watchers.
Zinio magazines may be read on a wide variety of apps available for many mobile
devices, including iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and Blackberry Playbook, and many magazines are interactive – clickable links, embedded videos, and added content beyond the print version.
