Great news for Zinio users!

Pulp-less Fiction: Digital Downloads

This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray.  The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today.   -Beth

New titles are being added early to the Zinio downloadable magazine collection.  Additional titles were chosen for 2014, and many of them are already available.  By the beginning of January there will be about 140 titles, up from 2013’s 100 titles.

For those new to Zinio, you can fully access and download individual issues of magazines for free, through the Appleton Public Library.  In some cases you will have access to back issues as well.  Go to the Appleton Public Library website at and click on the Zinio logo, under the image of the library card.  You will create a Zinio account, using your Infosoup library card number and PIN/password.  Here's how.

Unfortunately we will also be losing access to a few digital magazines.  The publishers of Consumer Reports will no longer make it available to libraries through Zinio as of January 1, and NFL Magazine has gone out of business. There may be a couple of others as well.

Zinio is easy to use, but if you aren't sure how to add the app and access the magazines, you can sign up for a 1:1 session with a librarian who will work with you to get started.  Sign up here.
