Download Free Magazines with Your Library Card

Read digital issues of your favorite magazines with Zinio, the ultimate one-stop shop for magazine lovers, completely FREE with your DC Public Library card. Access 175 titles and counting of your favorite print magazines, available online to view in your browser or to download to your device. And with Zinio apps for Apple, Android, Kindle Fire, Blackberry, Nook and Windows products, you can take your digital issue on the run!

With titles available in English and Spanish, you won't find DC Public Library's Zinio collection wanting. With a Zinio account, you won't have to worry about stacks of print magazines around your home, because it saves your digital check-outs, and with new issues being available each month as well as back issues on some titles, you won't have to sacrifice your lust for reading due to lack of physical space. 

All you need to begin is your library card number, simply register for a Zinio account, and browse DC Public Library's Zinio collection to get started. Visit DC Public Library's homepage or read our librarian-created LibGuide on getting started with Zinio. Step-by-step instructions for accessing and using Zinio are available here or if you desire visual instruction, stop by the Francis A. Gregory Library for hands-on help during your lunch break at noon on August 7 and August 20.

Discover what your local library has to offer with downloadable movies, music, and more available at your fingertips by stopping by one of our drop-in clinics on October 15 for Overdrive, October 19 for Zinio, and October 1 and 7 for Freegal. There you can explore the digital catalog and get hands-on help with using Overdrive to access DC Public Library's electronic collection of fiction, nonfiction, audiobooks, and videos. All you need is your library card to get started at the library or at home.

Can't stay? Instructional sheets will be provided for you to take home.
