SOUTH BRUNSWICK — Having a South Brunswick Public Library card now entitles you to full digital copies of some of your favorite magazines on your computer, tablet, or mobile device using the free Zinio reader app. Cardholders can check out as many magazines as they like and keep them as long as they like with no due dates or late fees.
Find popular selections including Newsweek, Weight Watchers, US Weekly, Rolling Stone, Runners World, Billboard, Women’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Popular Mechanics, Esquire, National Geographic, and more. SBPL and other member libraries of LMxAC (Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium) are offering a collection of 129 magazine titles to chose from absolutely free to library cardholders.
Zinio provides the magazines. Cardholders will be able to browse a full magazine as if leafing through the real deal. There is no limit to the number of people who can download an issue of a magazine and no complicated checkout or return process. Once a cardholder downloads a magazine issue it is theirs.
Copies of the latest issues are unlimited so there is no waiting.
Begin by setting up your free LMxAC account and a Zinio account through a link on the library’s website at www.sbpl.info or by going directly to www.rbdigital.com/lmxac/zinio. Step-by-step instructions will take you through the process.
Your library card number will be needed for verification to create a personalized library collection account with LMxAC. You will only need your library card the first time. The process will also ask you to set up a second account, this one will be a Zinio account. Be aware that Zinio also offers direct sales to the public; a user needs to be in the library’s LMxAC collection to select from the 129 free titles.
For questions, call the Information Desk at SBPL at 732-329-4000, ext. 7286. There will be a small demonstration class about using Zinio digital magazines on Wednesday, June 26 at 10 a.m. To register for the class, call the Information Desk or register online at www.sbpl.info.
