Introducing Zinio to MPL

Have you heard of Zinio? No? Well let me tell you all about it!

Zinio is a service that MPL is subscribing to in order to let our patrons enjoy their favorite magazines on their computer, tablet, or smartphone. We have over 70 magazines available, including popular titles like Every Day with Rachael Ray, Cosmopolitan, Car and Driver, ESPN, Family Circle, and much more!

In order to sign up for this free service and have access to all the magazines we have to offer:
  • Have your card number available
  • Go to http://www.mentorpl.org/adults/ and click on the Zinio link.
  • Create a free account with Zinio by signing up with your email address and library card.
  • Start reading your magazines!

In the mean time, try this free service out by seeing the "Ten Titles to Pick up Now" article in Oprah Magazine's March 2013 issue. Just click the link below to access it.

 A few more facts about Zinio:

  • No due dates! The magazines you check out are yours forever!
  • Unlimited lending! No waiting for the next person to return a magazine. There are no holds or limits.
  • Bookmark your page to return to your last location so you never lose your spot.
  • Share articles you enjoy by email or social networking sites, even if the viewer does not have a Zinio account.

For iPads, iPods, Android devices, Kindle Fires, and BlackBerry Playbooks, search the market/app store for the Zinio app.

If you have any questions, there is a handout available made by our staff, or feel free to contact the Reference Desk at (440) 255-8811 x.215. Or stop in and ask.
