Download full digital editions of popular magazines with Zinio

Zinio is a new service in 2014. Offered through Recorded Books, Zinio for Libraries permits Palisades Park Library cardholders to download full digital editions of popular magazines. We have joined 35 other BCCLS libraries and share a common title list.

The beauty of this service is that it is unlimited. If everyone wants to download the latest issue of an available title they can do so! No waiting a week or a month. No torn out articles. No return needed. Once you download an issue it is yours until you delete it. There are No limits on borrowing either.

You will have to create a Recorded Books account using your library card barcode. After doing that, you must create an account with Zinio using the same email address. Please note: The titles that you see offered when you click through our website are the free titles provided by the library. Zinio does provide other content for a subscription fee, but that is up to you.

Zinio digital magazines may be viewed within a browser or within the Zinio App designed for iOS or Android devices.
