Zinio

Zinio is a remarkable new service offered to North Riverside Library card holders, where you can download and read your favorite magazines on your computer, tablet, or smartphone both at home and on the go!

Choose from over 20 magazines currently available. Each new issue will be available for downloading onto your device. The issue is yours to keep for as long as you like – nothing to check out, nothing to renew, and nothing to return. It’s just like subscribing to the magazine except that it’s digital and it’s free!
