| No Comments
Greenwich Library has added 43 new magazine titles to the popular Zinio digital magazine service, which launched in January. This new service allows patrons to read and explore over 190 titles on their device of choice using their Greenwich Library card to set up a free, online account. 

Of the 43 new titles, nine are Food and Cooking magazines such as 30 Minute Dinners, Diabetic Living Holiday Recipes and Anyone Can Cook. There are also eight new Science and Technology titles, 3D World, iPhone Life and Computer Music

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, key word article search and interactive rich media elements such as audio and video. 

Magazines are flying off the Library's digital shelves with over 671 library patrons checking out 8,543 Zinio magazines since the service launched in January. Titles that have been viewed most frequently include Us Weekly, the Economist, Consumer Reports, HELLO! Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, National Geographic Interactive, Forbes, Newsweek and the Harvard Business Review

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. 

This service is part of Greenwich Library's Strategic Plan initiative to embrace and integrate emerging media into our collections. For more information, please contact the Reference Desk at (203) 622-7910.
