Zinio Digital Magazines Now Available

PPL now provides free digital magazines to registered patrons through zinio for libraries. Magazines include all the same material as the print version; some issues also include interactive features like video, audio and live web links. We have subscribed to over 36 magazines for our online newsstand (some titles are not available through zinio because their publishers do not participate). Read issues online or download to your computer or mobile device. Magazines do not have to be returned and never expire! First, log in to the library’s zinio page and checkout the magazines/issues you want, then read your magazines online or on your device.

Getting Started:

  • Go to the PPL zinio webpage – https://www.rbdigital.com/serls/service/zinio/landing?***
  • Click on ‘Create New Account’ at the top right. You will need to enter your library card number, email address, and a password. Your name is optional.
  • An email confirmation will be sent to you, containing a link to your library of checked out magazines.
  • Login to the library’s zinio webpage to select a magazine to checkout.
  • A second account is needed to view checked out magazines. You will enter your name, email address, and password. You can use the same password for both accounts.

Two Ways to View Your Magazines:

  • View them online in the ‘Your Library’ area of the library’s zinio webpage from any computer with Internet access, a web browser, and Adobe Flash.
  • Download your magazines via a ‘reader’ app on your device. Zinio has apps for Windows 8, IOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Nook HD/HD+, and Blackberry Playbook devices, as well as for your desktop.

Notes – You cannot unsubscribe from magazines, but you can delete them from your device. Not all zinio magazines are available for free from the library, see included list of publications. Zinio does not currently have an app for Nook Color or Tablet. Additional help is available, including a step-by-step video, on the library’s zinio web page.
