  • The Livingston County Library is pleased to announce the availability of Zinio for libraries, an online database that offers unlimited access to complete digital magazines.  
    This allows library patrons to have access to 34 magazines, including Us Weekly, Newsweek, Taste of Home, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance  and  National Geographic  on their computer or other mobile device.  This service is available through the Library’s website, www.livingstoncountylibrary.org on the Online Resources page. This service is available to Library patrons with a valid library card number.
    “The popularity of ebooks and ereaders indicates that people want digital material as well as print material,” stated Library Director Robin Westphal.
    “We hope to add new magazines every year, but feel that our patrons we be able to find something that interests them, from sports to home decorating, finance to music and news to cooking, there’s something for everyone,” continued Westphal.
    Because of the unlimited, simultaneous option of Zinio, magazines do not have a return date, nor does a patron have to wait for other patrons to finish a magazine before they can check it out.  There are current issues and each person can check out as many magazines as they want.  This also means that if there is something you want to keep from a magazine you can leave the magazine on your computer or mobile device for as long as you like.
    Zinio for Libraries was named the database of the year by Library Journal in 2012.
    Zinio works with iPads, iPhones, PCs, Macs, Android devices, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, Nook HD, Blackberry and Windows 8 tablets.
    A user’s guide is available on the Library’s website and instructions are available at the Library.  Zinio does require patrons to set up 2 accounts, a Library Collection account to access the Livingston County Library’s collection of magazines and a Zinio.com Reader account to read the checked out magazines via streaming online with computer and/or download offline via mobile apps.
    For information about Zinio or to get your library card number, please call the Library at 660-646-0547.
