STAFF REPORT - The Lee County Library System now offers access to over 250 popular magazines with both current and past editions for free with a Lee County Library card. The Lee County Library System recently subscribed to Zinio an application that allows patrons to download magazines to any Internet-enabled device.
Once downloaded, the magazines are available on your device for reading at anytime and anywhere. There is no limit on the number of magazines you can download at one time and they do not expire.
The library system subscribes to the most popular magazines to make them available to patrons.
“The library is constantly testing and researching new methods to deliver content to our patrons whether they physically visit the libraries or visit our virtual library branch from their homes and offices. This 'app' is just another service that is part of our robust virtual library and newsstand,” said Sheldon Kaye, Lee County Library System Director.
Some of the magazines available via Zinio include Audubon, Boating, Billboard, Consumer Reports, Discover, Family Circle, Forbes, Good Housekeeping, Hot Rod, Kiplinger’s, Ladies' Home Journal, Men’s Health, Motor Trend, Newsweek, PC World, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, Prevention, Readers Digest and many more.
To find the Zinio application and portal to the magazines go to Lewisberry.net/esquires. It is highly recommended that patrons read the Zinio user’s guide before downloading Zinio to ensure a successful set-up of the app and the associated accounts.
After you subscribe to a magazine you will have access to all editions from that point forward, so if you want past editions be sure to begin the subscription with the oldest edition that you want to read.
Current issues can be viewed on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire or Blackberry Playbook.
For more information on the service call telephone reference at (239) 479-4636 (INFO). You can also go to the library website and choose Zinio at library.leegov.com/pages/online.aspxNeed help signing up? Go to keepandshare.com/doc/3975638/zinio-patron-user-guide?da=y.
