Zinio downloadable magazines now available!
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. There may even be an occasional post on genealogy. 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. -Diana
Zinio provides subscription access to popular magazines, creating them page-for page with full-color photos, navigation by page, interactive media elements such as audio and video, and key word article searches. They may be read on your computer, your tablet or phone, through the appropriate Zinio app.* Appleton Public Library's subscription provides 100 magazine titles, with most of them already being available, and the rest arriving in the next few weeks. There isn't a limit on how many titles you can choose from this selection.
To get started you will need an active InfoSoup library card and email address. Access the free magazine feature through the Appleton Public Library interface. Create a Zinio account and password. By logging in through this access you will be able to choose free magazines from those included in our subscription.
Pick a magazine you wish to read and download it to your device. There is no checkout period--you get to keep it as long as you like. When you are done reading you will delete the issue. Once you have subscribed to a title, the next issue will automatically appear. Just remember to access Zinio from the Appleton Public Library to assure free access when you are adding more titles to your account.
*Though the site says that there is an app for the Kindle Fire, at this point it is not available according to Kindle support. Check back later for access to more devices.
