To get started, visit phoenixpubliclibrary.org and click on "magazines & newspapers" on the left side of the page. A link to more detailed information about Zinio, the library partner providing the service, is located near the bottom of the page.
Library cardholders will be asked to create a Zinio account separate from their library account. Magazines may be viewed online using a browser or offline using software that can be downloaded from Zinio. Once downloaded, magazines can be viewed without an Internet connection.
Zinio makes apps available for reading magazines on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire and HP's Touchpad. Currently, the service is not compatible with Windows Mobile, Blackberry (or other PDAs) or reading devices such as the Sony Reader, Nook or Kindle (original) at this time.
Phoenix Public Library cards are free to residents of Maricopa County and may be obtained at any library location. For more information, call 602-262-4636 or visit phoenixpubliclibrary.org.
