Getting Started with Zinio
Using Zinio is easy, and getting registered only takes a few minutes! All you need to get started is

  • Library Card
  • Computer, Laptop, Tablet, or Smartphone
    1. Begin by going to the ARLS Zinio Page

      • Library card number
      • Name
      • Email address

      Congratulations! You have now signed up for Zinio with the library.

You will be taken to a page where you can now select from all the great digital magazines that we have to offer. There are 50 titles to choose from and no limits on how many you can subscribe to...get all 50 if you want! The best part is, there's no waiting! Zinio provides 24/7 unlimited multi-user access to magazines, so any number of our patrons can be reading the same magazine at a time. There is no checkout, no returns, and it's easy to get new issues!

  1. When you select your first magazine title, you will notice that you are asked to register again if you are a first time user. This is the second account you must create. It is the same information as before: name, email, password.
