Library card holders now have free online access to over 100 magazines

All library card holders at Sylvan Lake Municipal Library and throughout the Parkland Regional Library system now have free access to Zinio

All library card holders at Sylvan Lake Municipal Library and throughout the Parkland Regional Library system now have free access to Zinio, the world’s largest newsstand.

Zinio for Libraries features over 100 magazines that can be accessed on your computer, smartphone or tablet. Digital magazines look just like print ones, including full colour pictures, but also come with interactive elements such as audio and video and the ability to search. Library patrons get unlimited instant access to complete digital magazines — and best of all, there is no due date, so you can keep the magazine as long as you want, stated a media advisory from Parkland Regional Library.

National Geographic, Shape, Rolling Stone, Elle Canada, Car & Driver, Canadian Living, Outdoor Canada, House & Home, Popular Science and Alberta Venture are just a few of the popular titles available.

“Zinio is a great service for library patrons — if you haven’t used a tablet before, Zinio is a reason to try,” said Meredith Bratland, communications coordinator with Parkland. “The interface is so smooth and responsive. I can’t wait to have all these magazines at my fingertips! Keeping up-to-date with my favourite magazines just became way more affordable.”

To find out more about this service, visit Sylvan Lake Municipal Library or go to the website www.prl.ab.ca/zinio. The service was launched Nov. 1.
