Cole Corner: Check out new service: online magazines
May 31, 2013 · Cathy Boggs
Magazines are a popular item in libraries. They are a quick read with a lot of pictures tailored to your interests. At Cole Library we have always had a magazine selection for patrons to check out but due to space constraints we have had to limit our offerings, especially to our teen readers.
However, thanks to digital technology, our selection just got a whole lot bigger! We have purchased Zinio. What is Zinio? It is a link on our web page that allows you to select, download, and read full-text magazines. The magazine looks exactly like the paper copy - photos, articles, ads, and all - but it is a digital copy you can load onto your computer and/or transfer to your personal electronic device. We have 90 titles for you to choose from. They are never due - they are on your device until you erase them, and you can check out as many as you want. Titles vary greatly, from cooking to skate boarding. So go to www.colelibrary.org , click on Zinio, set up your account, and check out digital magazines.
