I really should be sharing information about what we offer at our own library, but sometimes other libraries are doing something so cool I have to spread the word. After all, publicizing any one library is really good for all libraries, isn’t it?
Our local public county library is now offering access to dozens of magazines online, FOR FREE, through the magazine viewer service Zinio. It is AMAZING. You can check out as many magazines as you want (no limit!) and keep them for as long as you want. They’re all full-color replicas of the magazines online, so they look exactly the same as their print counterparts, only without all the annoying fragrance samples and subscriber cards. You can download these magazines and read them on your computer, or on you your tablet or smartphone using the Zinio app. All you need is a St. Mary’s County Public Library card.
I’m off to read Martha Stewart’s Living, Interweave Knits, and the latest issue of Marie Clare (but if you’re into Newsweek and Popular Science they’re available too). Check out Zinio today and browse for your favorite magazine.
