overdrive2.jpg  OverDrive: Download Ebooks & Audiobooks

zinio.png  Zinio: Digital Magazines
Read full-color magazines on your computer/laptop, smartphone, or tablet. How cool is that? Sign up for 2 accounts: 1 on the library's collection page and 1 on the Zinio page (when you check out & go to Zinio with "Start Reading" you can choose to get a Zinio account at that time). We recommend that you use the same login and password for both accounts. For mobile devices, download the Zinio app. Start at the library's collection page, checkout magazine issues, then click "Start Reading." A Zinio tab/window will open where you will sign in to (or create an account for) Zinio. When you open the app on your mobile device your magazines will be there to download. It can be tricky at first to navigate between the library's collection of magazines and Zinio's reader page so definitely contact us for help if needed!
