Magazines from Zinio

Read full digital copies of your favorite magazines on a computer, tablet, smartphone, or mobile device.

How does it work?

  • You’ll need your County of Los Angeles Public Library card & a computer or device with internet access (data rates may apply when downloading to a smartphone or device)
  • Using the library’s free Zinio magazine service requires the creation of two accounts - a Library Zinio account to view the County Library’s collection and a free Zinio.com account to read magazines online or via the Zinio app on your mobile device. Follow these steps below to create both accounts. (We recommend using the same email & password.)

Create a Library Zinio account to browse and check out

  1. Go to the colapublib.org/zinio to create your account.
  2. Enter your library card number.
  3. Enter your name, email and create a password. You will receive a welcome email to confirm your account.
  4. Begin browsing the Library Zinio magazine collection.

Create a free Zinio.com account to read your magazines

  1. Browse the library’s collection and click a cover to check out a magazine.
  2. First-time users must enter an email address and password to create a free Zinio.com account (for your next visit, click on SIGN IN HERE).
  3. In your Zinio.com account, click on YOUR LIBRARY to read the magazines you have checked out.

Install the Zinio Reader App

  • Visit your device’s app store to download and install the free Zinio app for Apple iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Blackberry, Windows 8, PC, or Mac.
    Note: Use the Zinio app only to read your magazines. Browse and check out magazines using a Web browser & your Library Zinio account.

Read your Magazines

  • Read your magazines using your computer browser or the Zinio Reader app on your tablet, smartphone, or mobile device. For optimal viewing, we recommend using the free Zinio Reader App. Depending on your device, click on READ or a book icon to read your magazines.

Checking Out Additional Magazines

  • Using a web browser on your computer or device, return to your Library Zinio Collection at colapublib.org/zinio to check out additional magazines. Note: You cannot check out magazines from Zinio.com or the Zinio Reader App.

Managing Your Zinio.com Account

  • Note: Zinio.com is a commercial website and will have advertisements for magazines not offered by the Library, as well as more adult content. Go to ACCOUNT SETTINGS to stop receiving unwanted sample magazines, emails from Zinio.com, or to block adult content.
  • To edit your collection to remove magazines, connect to your Zinio.com account. Click YOUR LIBRARY at the top of the browser page. Click EDIT YOUR READING LIST. Use the dropdown arrows to select the title you wish to cancel. Click the red X button to remove, then click DONE.
