Library offers online magazine service

Published:

The Kent Free Library, in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books, will offer Zinio for Libraries, which provides patrons instant digital access to popular magazines.

Through Zinio, digital magazines can be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, and can be "flipped through" or searched easily.

Magazines will be available on their release date, and there will be no waiting lists. The magazines download to the patron's computer or device, so there's no "checkout period" and no late fees.

There are 84 magazines available through the library's website, www.kentfreelibrary.org, under "Collections." For more information, call 330-673-4414.
