There are FAQ and Help sections at Zinio.com, but here are answers to the most common questions.
- Why do I need to log in twice?
Your first login is to show that you have a library card from Greenwich or Perrot Library, so you can add subscriptions for free. The second is the Zinio login so you can use their site.
- Can I go straight to the Zinio.com site?
Yes, you can go directly to the site, where you will need to login to your Zinio account. Also be aware that to subscribe for free to a magazine, you must enter from the Greenwich Library website.
- What if I want a magazine that Greenwich Library doesn't provide?
You may still subscribe, but you will need to pay for it yourself. If you are already logged in from the Greenwich Library site, click Account Settings from the menu on the top, then Shop, in the upper left. If you go directly to Zinio.com, just click Shop.
