The world’s largest newsstand is available at the Livingston Parish Library. Library patrons can download their favorite magazines to their computer, tablet computer, e-reader or smartphone through Zinio.
Unlike other e-book resources, there are no checkout limits or wait times with Zinio. Instead, users can borrow the downloaded magazine for as long as needed. The service also allows users to personalize their account, including setting up notifications when new issues are available for download.
Zinio’s selection includes more than 100 magazines in many genres, such as news, technology, business, entertainment, home and garden and science. Through Zinio, users can move between text, interactive graphics, animated illustrations, videos and more.
“This is another tremendous addition to a great lineup of services offered by the library,” library Director Giovanni Tairov said. “We are happy to offer this product to our patrons and hope they are just as excited about it as we are. I’m confident that both the selection and the immediate availability of such popular titles will please a wide variety of reading interests.”
Zinio is available from home as well as in the library. It is free for all Livingston Parish Library card holders. Users must have an email address and a library card number to log into the database. To get started, visit http://www.mylpl.info.
