Zinio for libraries provides Heights Libraries customers with access to 150 different magazine titles. This service is free using your library card. Once checked out, the magazines are yours to keep. The titles do not expire, so no returns are necessary!

One Account –  The most exciting change is that new users only need to create ONE account to register for Zinio.  There is no longer a need to create dual accounts between Zinio for Libraries and zinio.com.

Apps – RBdigital – Read Zinio magazines off-line by downloading the RBdigital app on your device and logging in with your library card credentials. The new app will display only magazines you’ve checked out from the library.

Your Collection – You can now view and manage your magazine collection (items you have checked out) from the Heights Zinio for Libraries collection page in your browser. You will also no longer be directed to Zinio.com when you check out a magazine. Account creation, search, browse, check out, and in browser reading functions are now all done on the Heights Zinio for Libraries page!

For additional information on these upgrades, please view the HELP section on the Heights Zinio for Library website: https://www.rbdigital.com/clevelandheightsoh/help

The Zinio improvements are very exciting, but there is more good news. OverDrive now also provides access to popular magazines and newspapers!
