Library goes digital

Greenwich Library is doing its part to keep up with the digital age and recently announced its collaboration with Zinio, a new service that allows patrons to read and explore the largest selection of digital magazines using just their Greenwich Library card.

The service is available now on the library’s website.

Zinio provides a quick and easy way for library patrons to read digital copies of their favorite magazines. Using their Mac or PC, reading fans can access the library’s catalog of selected digital magazines. According to the library, Zinio’s unique digital platform recreates a magazine page-for-page, including highly visual full-color pictures, while taking the reading experience even further through intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive rich media elements such as audio and video.

Consumer Reports, Car & Driver, Good Housekeeping, The Economist, ESPN Magazine and Esquire are just a few of the popular titles available.

Magazine issues are not checked out to individual patrons, so they’re always available any time. Read online or download issues to your computer or mobile device to read offline. You must have a current Greenwich Library or Perrot Library card to use this collection. Greenwich Library subscribes to nearly 150 titles.

To see a full list, or to get started, visit greenwichlibrary.org, then click Downloadable Library. This service is part of Greenwich Library’s Strategic Plan initiative to embrace and integrate emerging media into its collections.
