Library Offers Free Magazine Downloads

Arlington Public Library launched a new feature today that allows library users to download digital copies of popular magazines for free.

The service is provided by Zinio, which bills itself as the “world’s largest newsstand.” Registered library cardholders can now download unlimited copies of 100 magazine titles — like Consumer Reports, Cosmopolitan, Dwell, The Economist, ESPN The Magazine, National Geographic, Popular Science, and US Weekly — and view the titles on a computer desktop or on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device.

Zinio displays the digital copy in the same format at the print magazine, with the addition of bonus features like video, audio and hyperlinks. The digital copies are always available, never expire, and can be stored indefinitely.

More information on the service can be found in the video above and on the library website.
