Digital Magazines are Here!

Zinio from Starke County Public Library brings free magazines to your computer or web-enabled device!   Zinio is an unlimited, simultaneous-use digital newsstand. This high quality service is the same as that used by many consumers to access magazines in their digital form, but is now available for libraries through Recorded Books Digital.

  • Over 60 magazines are available.  Check out as many as you like – no limits.
  • No check out period – no late fees!  Keep the magazines as long as you wish.
  • Digital Magazines are full-print, full-color (including advertisements) - exactly like the print magazine, with bonus interactive elements in many magazines.

Readers can view the magazines on a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, and e-readers.  You can even download the magazine so that it can be enjoyed for offline reading.  Visit the Starke County Public Library digital downloads page at www.starkecountylibrary.org/zinio  for more information, and to start enjoying these wonderful magazines!
