Guys, I know I go on and on about how much I love our library system, but I just can’t help it! Every month I find out about another new and awesome service the library provides for my favorite price-FREE!
For example, did you know that you can use your library card to download high quality children’s magazines, for FREE? I know-how great is that??
My kids love magazines, and I love seeing them reading! I especially love all the new things they can learn about science, geography, history, and other topics with specialty magazines just for them. The only problem is that a lot of these are quite expensive. Problem solved!
With your PCL library card you can check out current and back issues. There’s no limit, so download as many as you want. You never have to return a borrowed digital magazine. Woot!!
Choose from magazines such as Ladybug for pre-schoolers and early readers, Click for inquisitive first and second graders and Muse for curious kids in grades 5 through 9. And who can forget Highlights, the beloved magazine delighting children since 1946. They also have America Girl magazine, and more than 16 children’s titles in total. through the Zinio download service.
Download the Zinio app through your phone’s app store or visit zinio.pcls.us. One note-Zinio is not currently compatible with Windows Mobile, Blackberry or e-readers such as Kindle or Nook.
