Magazines Wherever You Are: Introducing Zinio! Print Email

Link to Zinio and Get Started!Are you ever stuck in the waiting room while going to the doctor or getting your oil changed, and you have nothing to read but the magazines on the table? What if you had 100 different current magazine issues at your fingertips?

Now you do! Whatcom County Library System is partnering with Bellingham Public Library to bring you a new digital magazine service, called Zinio!

Zinio brings you full digital copies of your favorite magazines. Together, your libraries have subscribed to 100 magazines -- including popular titles like Newsweek and Consumer Reports, ESPN and Car & Driver, Family Circle and Good Housekeeping, Elle and Oprah. Give Zinio a try, and let us know what you think! All you need is your library card. Start here: http://www.wcls.org/zinio-faq

You get the exact same pages and layout as the print magazine – ads and all – and some magazines even include interactive features, like video, audio, and web links.  There are no “checkouts”, so all 100 magazines are available to everyone at any time.

Please note: To use a mobile device for Zinio, you will want to set up your Zinio account first, then download the Zinio app. Need help? Contact the library at 360-384-3150 to speak with library staff. Or feel free to drop in on an eBook help session. See the Event Calendar on our website for more details!
