Announcing—Zinio! Use it to read magazines on your laptop, tablet, or personal device courtesy of the Fox Lake District Library!
Zinio gives access to some of your favorite periodicals at the touch of a button. We have subscribed to over (seventy) magazines through Zinio—you can use them free of charge and keep them on your device as long as you want!
You must be a resident of the Fox Lake Public Library District to access Zinio through our library.
Using your Fox Lake District Library card barcode, you’ll apply for accounts at Zinio.com (see further instructions below) that will allow you to select and view magazines.
You will also need an e-mail address for account verification.
When you’ve signed up and are ready to go, you can choose between the many magazines we’ve subscribed to through Zinio.
These include general interest magazines such as Newsweek and Readers Digest, women’s magazines that include Elle, Marie Claire and Glamour, and specialized titles like Sierra, Apple and Rolling Stone.
To start, go to the Fox Lake District Library’s website (www.fllib.org) and click on the Zinio logo or on “digital magazines” on the home page’s sidebar for further instructions.
A simple tutorial on using this great new service is posted there, and you can also see the full listing of magazines available through Zinio on our website.
