GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Library has added 31 new magazine titles to the popular Zinio digital magazine service, which launched last year.
This new service allows patrons to explore more than 180 titles on their device of choice using their Greenwich Library card to set up a free online account.
New titles include venerable fashion and glamour magazines, Vogue and Teen Vogue, Glamour and W. Patrons who enjoy visiting New York City now can access sophisticated humor and reviews from The New Yorker and those who prefer to stay local can download Greenwich Magazine. Other notable additions include foreign language magazines in Japanese, Chinese and Spanish, including Siempre Mujer and Cocina Facile (Spanish), My Garden and Axis (Japanese) and Business Weekly (Chinese).
The Zinio collection is searchable by title and by 19 different genres including food and cooking, travel, lifestyle, health and fitness, business, architecture, hobbies and pets. To see a full list of available titles, or to get started, visit http://www.greenwichlibrary.org , then click Downloadable Library.
Zinio’s unique digital platform recreates a magazine page-for-page, including highly visual full-color pictures, while taking the reading experience even further through intuitive navigation, keyword article search and interactive rich media elements such as audio and video.
Magazines are flying off the library’s digital shelves with more than 1,100 library patrons checking out 22,600 Zinio magazines since July 2013. Most frequently viewed titles include Us Weekly, The Economist, Martha Stewart Living, Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek and Newsweek.
Unlike ebooks, magazine issues are not checked out to individual patrons, so they're always available any time. Read online or download issues to your computer or mobile device to read offline. You must have a current Greenwich Library or Perrot Library card to use this collection.
The Zinio service is part of Greenwich Library’s strategic plan initiative to embrace and integrate emerging media into its collections. For more information, please contact the Reference Desk at (203) 622-7910.
