UNION — The Union County Carnegie Library, in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD), is pleased to offer Zinio for Libraries. Awarded Best New Database of 2012 by Library Journal, Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications.
Through the library’s website (www.unionlibrary.org), Union Carnegie Library patrons have unlimited multi-user access to complete digital magazines which can easily be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio’s unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and Reader’s Digest are just a few of the popular titles available.
“We are thrilled to offer this new service to our patrons,” said Library Director Ben Loftis. “We are excited to extend our offerings of digital resources to our patrons, and thankful to the Rotary Club of Union and our Friends of the Library group for making this a possibility.”
