Timberland Library launches e-magazine service

Unlimited free access to digital editions of 100 popular magazines is now available to patrons of the Timberland Regional Library website.

Library cardholders can read the latest issues on a PC or Mac computer on most tablets and mobile devices as soon as they create a free account with the library and e-magazine provider Zinio.

The start up collection includes magazines for a variety of interests, such as “National Geographic,” “US Weekly,” “Bloomberg Businessweek,” “Shape,” “Rolling Stone,” “Martha Stewart Living,” “Motor Trend,” “American Girl,” “Cosmopolitan,” “O - The Oprah Magazine” and “Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.”

The e-magazines are full-text and full-color, and some provide additional content such as video, audio and web links.

All titles are always available for check out. New issues are available online when the print edition is released.

Free apps are available for iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, and Android.

Patrons can start at http://www.trl.org/Collection/Pages/Zinio.aspx to create their Timberland and Zinio accounts. The page also includes an illustrated step-by-step “Zinio Digital Magazines Checkout and Download Instructions” document if needed.

For the initial collection, the library chose from Zinio’s most popular titles and the titles that Timberland patrons checked out most often when available as well as titles in a variety of genres to cover a wide range of interests.

For more information, people can contact a local Timberland Library or visit www.TRL.org.
