The Iowa City Public Library recently added children’s titles to its Zinio Digital Magazines collection, bringing the number of magazines patrons can read on digital devices to nearly 200.
With titles that appeal to all ages – from Babybug for babies and toddlers to American Girl and Dig for older elementary through middle school students – parents now have more options to keep their children entertained on the go.
“Our digital magazine collection gives patrons the opportunity to read the magazines they enjoy without having to pay subscription prices,” said Anne Mangano, the Library’s coordinator of collection services.
Zinio is available to Iowa City Public Library cardholders who reside in Iowa City, rural Johnson County, Hills, Lone Tree, and University Heights, as well as North Liberty residents. The service requires an ICPL Library Card and password. North Liberty residents need a valid North Liberty Community Library card and password.
To sign up for Zinio, visit icpl.org/zinio and follow the instructions on the screen. Once a magazine is downloaded onto your smartphone or tablet, it’s yours forever. There’s no limit on the amount of titles you can choose.
