There is a new digital magazine service called Zinio for Libraries which will allow patrons to access more than 100 popular magazine titles via the Internet on PCs, Macs and read them on their iPad, or iPhone Touch, Android devices, and Blackberry Playbook. The digital magazines are full text and full page. Just go to the library’s website, http://www.ebrpl.com, and click the “Online Databases” tab, then select Zinio from the menu. After entering your library card number, you’ll be taken to the page where you can set up a Zinio account. Once the account is set up, you’ll see a link to go back to the library’s collection. There, you can choose what magazines you want to “subscribe” to. Zinio will notify you when new issues are available.
Can I look up my library card number?
In order to protect your personal privacy and account information, the library does not allow patrons to look up their library card number online, and it will not tell you your number over the phone. If you’ve lost your card, bring a picture ID to any branch and the library will issue a new card for $1.
How do I find out about employment in the film industry in Louisiana?
To find out information about employment in the Louisiana film industry, view the library’s Arts & Culture InfoGuide on its website, http://www.ebrpl.com.
