Digital magazine service now available at Nanaimo library

Having the world’s largest digital newsstand at your fingertips is now as easy as being a Vancouver Island Regional Library member.

VIRL is the latest public library system to subscribe to Zinio, a mobile reading application that gives library customers access to digital editions of hundreds of popular magazines.

All you need is a library card to search and select from hundreds of magazines, and either read them online or download to your home computer, tablet or smartphone.

“Zinio allows you to move seamlessly within each publication from text to interactive graphics to animated illustrations and video,” said 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.”
