The Iowa City Public Library recently added 38 new titles to its Zinio Digital Magazines collection, bringing the number of magazines patrons can read on digital devices to nearly 200.
New titles available to download include The New Yorker, Wired, Vanity Fair, and Vogue. There is no check-out period and you can keep the magazine forever. There’s no limit on the amount of titles you can choose.
The Library launched its digital magazine stand in the fall of 2012, allowing patrons to read magazines on their computer, tablet or smart phone. In the past year, hundreds of patrons have downloaded thousands of magazines.
“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. This service requires a valid email address to register with Recorded Books and Zinio, and a valid Library card and password.
When first accessing Zinio, you will be asked to create an account with Recorded Books. Once you have selected a magazine, you will be asked to create a second account with Zinio. Please note this is not the same account you created when first accessing the site. Please use the same email address for both accounts.
