GALVESTON — The Rosenberg Library now offers Zinio Downloadable Magazines and IndieFlix for Rosenberg Library patrons.
Availability of these services is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; a patron will need access to the Internet and a valid Rosenberg Library card to use.
Zinio for Libraries is a digital collection of popular magazines that can be accessed from the web or through apps for PCs and Macs, Apple and Android phones and tablets, Windows 8, Kindle Fire/HD, Nook HD/HD+, and BlackBerry PlayBooks.
Cardholding patrons will have access to complete digital editions of magazines featuring brilliant full-color images, keyword searching, intuitive navigation and display, and interactive audiovisual elements.
Patrons will be able to enjoy both current and back issues of some of their favorite magazines.
The Economist, Forbes, Newsweek, National Geographic, Rolling Stone and Women’s Health are just a few of the exciting digital titles available in the library’s startup collection.
Patrons can get started with Zinio by logging in with their library bar code and will be prompted to create a personal reading account with Zinio in order to read and manage their checked-out titles.
Titles do not have due dates, never expire and do not accumulate fines. There is no checkout limit, and patrons can save issues permanently to their Zinio account for future reading.
