With a free Zinio account, library patrons can read digital magazines through the Zinio app on Android, Kindle and Apple devices OR directly in their browser on any internet-enabled device! First, you’ll need to go to the Zinio website and create an account using your library card number. Then you can browse through and check out digital magazines – no hold lists, due dates or fines! You can also find the Zinio app in the app store for Apple, Android and Kindle devices.

*Special instructions are needed to install Zinio on the Kindle Fire; they can be found here.


Some of you may have used Overdrive and the Wisconsin Digital Library to check out digital magazines. Unfortunately, effective October 1, 2016, the Wisconsin Digital Library no longer carries magazines due to the end of Overdrive’s partnership with Barnes and Noble. All digital magazines now go through Zinio.
