Access the world’s largest digital newsstand at the library

Vancouver Island Regional Library is the latest public library system to subscribe to Zinio

Vancouver Island Regional Library is the latest public library system to subscribe to Zinio, a mobile reading application that gives library customers access to digital editions of popular magazines. If you have a library card you can search and select from hundreds of magazines that look just like the real thing.

“Zinio allows you to move seamlessly within each publication from text to interactive graphics to animated illustrations and video,” says Fiona Anderson, Director of Library Services. “You can use the magazine’s table of contents to jump to specific articles and the zoom feature is a bonus for readers who like bigger print.”

Read online or download your favourites to your computer, tablet or smartphone. And it’s free with your library card. Visit www.virl.bc.ca and click on the Zinio button.
