Westlake Porter Public Library Now Offering Emagazines
Westlake Porter Public Library is offering its users something new in 2013: Emagazines. The library’s collection of digital magazines is supplied by Zinio through the library’s website (www.westlakelibrary.org). Zinio allows users to instantly download and view magazines on any Internet-enabled device — computer, e-reader, or other mobile device. Zinio apps are available for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and Blackberry Playbook for ease of use. Each title in Zinio allows unlimited multiple users.
WPPL’s collection includes popular titles such as Consumer Reports, O, the Oprah Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Woman’s Day, Harper’s Bazaar and Car and Driver. It also includes Newsweek, which was recently discontinued in its print version. The collection covers a variety of genres – women, men, automotive, health/fitness, entertainment, hobbies, fashion, and much more.
To access the emagazines users must have a valid WPPL library card and create an account. Once you have successfully created an account, just log in for a link to the library’s Zinio collection.
“The world of publishing continues to evolve and more information is being offered digitally rather than in print,” said Library Director Andrew Mangels. “Westlake Porter Public Library is committed to ensuring that our users have access to the information they need regardless of format, and emagazines are the latest way we’re meeting that goal.”
