Zinio is the world’s largest online magazine subscription database. Our library is offering over 100 digital magazine subscription titles to our patrons over the web via the Oscar Grady website.  Any active library patron, with a valid library card, will be able to check out and download magazine subscriptions; they can then read them via a web browser, or through any supported mobile device such as Android phones and tablets, iOS devices (iPad, iPhone), Kindle HD, or the Nook HD/HD+.

Magazine issues can be checked out and downloaded without wait lists, patrons can keep any issue they download as long as they want (there are no checkout periods), and there is no limit to the number of checkouts per patron.

To use Zinio, patrons must complete a one-time setup of both an Oscar Grady Zinio Account:

and a Zinio.com Account:

www.zinio.com

This will give patrons free access to the subscriptions that the library has purchased.  Patrons browse and check out issues in the Oscar Grady Zinio Account, the account then syncs with the supported devices through the account setup and by downloading the app to your device.
