The Durham Public Library is pleased to announce the availability of Zinio for Libraries, the world's largest newsstand. This new service is delivered by the Libraries Online, Inc. (LION) consortium of resource-sharing CT member libraries.
Zinio offers a large collection of full-color, interactive digital magazines with no holds, no due date, and no limit to how many issues can be downloaded. New issues of 150 popular and special-interest titles are released and ready for download at the same time as the print edition.
By visiting the Durham Public Library website at http://www.durhamlibrary.org/zinio-digital-magazines-available/, patrons with a valid library card can create a personal Zinio account to check out magazines at no charge and read them instantly via computer or portable media device such as a smartphone, tablet, or color e-reader.
Users may check out as many issues as desired and keep them in their personal Zinio account as long as they want.
"The initial account setup can be a bit tricky, but users who follow the detailed instructions available on our library website should have no challenges," advises Trish Connolly, director of the Durham Public Library. "Zinio is one more great way to access library collections from anywhere, at any time."
