The Humboldt County Library is pleased to provide access to “The World’s Largest Newsstand” with the launch of Zinio, a new database providing digital access to some of today’s most popular magazines.
Through the Library website patrons have unlimited multi-user access to complete digital magazines, which can easily be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices. Zinio recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. You have the option of having the articles and pages render similar to a web page, meaning you don't have to pinch and zoom to read stories.
The breadth of the collection includes magazines focused on news, art, home, lifestyle, science, technology, sports, travel, entertainment, food and so much more. There’s something for everyone including adults and children. National Geographic, Food Network, Wired, Discover, Yoga Journal, Popular Science, American Girl Magazine, Cricket, Sports Illustrated and Newsweek are just a few of the popular titles available.
Library cardholders can read complete digital editions, check out an unlimited number of magazines and experience anytime, anywhere availability on PCs, Macs and most mobile devices. Patrons can instantly stream magazines or download them for offline reading and may keep the magazines indefinitely. There is no “due date” and, once downloaded, the magazine is permanently stored on that device until the user deletes it. In addition, users can opt to receive an email notification announcing the arrival of the latest issue of a favorite title. Log in today and create a Zinio account to get started.
To access Zinio go to the Library’s website at humlib.org, click on eBooks, then click on the link for Zinio. For more information please contact the Reference Desk at 707-269-1905.
