You can browse, checkout, and read Zinio magazines in your web browser on your computer or mobile device.

Available Mobile App Readers:

Using the App

The app is a reader only for the MCPL Zinio collection. You must use a web browser to browse and check out magazines from the MCPL collection. If you try to search for and download a magazine in the app directly, you will be prompted to purchase the magazine issue.

In the app, "My Library" refers to the magazine issues that you have checked out and downloaded. It does not refer to the complete MCPL collection.

If you have the app open at the same time that you are checking out a title in your web browser, you will have to close and reopen the app for "My Library" to refresh with the new issue.


How to use Zinio

Getting Started

Zinio for Libraries - New Interface June 2013 from RBdigital from Recorded Books on Vimeo.

First Time Users

Note: You will need to create two accounts - a MCPL Zinio for Libraries account and a Zinio account. Two accounts are required so that Zinio recognizes you as a MCPL user and you will not be prompted for payment when you download your magazine issues.

Go to MCPL Zinio for Libraries in your web browser.

Create your MCPL Zinio for Libraries account by entering your library card number, PIN, email address, and a password of your choice.

Browse and choose your magazines.  You may choose as many as you wish. Click on Checkout.

Click on "Create a Zinio account."  Your MCPL Zinio for Libraries account email address and your Zinio account email address MUST match. We recommend you use the same password as well.


Click on Go to Library  to see your chosen magazines.  Click on the cover to read the full magazine online.

Or install the Zinio mobile reading app to download and read magazines.  You must create your Zinio account before using the app.
