Magazine subscriptions. On your computer. FOR FREE!

Historically, there’s been only one place where I read magazines: my grandma’s house. Sadly, she only subscribes to L.L. Bean and AARP.

Fact is, CLP has a pretty great selection of magazines on tons of topics. But I don’t have time right now to sit in the library and read magazines, and I always forget magazines when I’m browsing for new materials to take home (don’t make my mistake).

Now? Using a Zinio account and my library card, I can read magazines at home, on my computer, for free.

See that? That’s a screen shot of me and Ke$ha reading a magazine.

If signing up seems tricky, I promise that these instructions make it a breeze, or we will too, if you pay us a visit! Leigh Anne, one of our super cool Reference librarians at CLP – Main already did a thorough write up of the awesomeness (printing! Scrolling! An e-mail every time there is a new issue of your favorite magazines!)  that is Zinio.

Dive in to Zinio and our other digital offerings at eCLP. Let us know if you have questions. And please, let us know what you think!
