The Athens Regional Library System is pleased to announce that patrons can now check out downloadable digital magazines through Zinio for Libraries.

Through www.athenslibrary.org, Athens Regional Library System patrons now have access to complete digital magazines, which can be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio’s unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video.

A wide range of titles is available, including “Seventeen,” “Car and Driver,” “Newsweek,” and many others. You can check out as many magazines as you would like. There are no due dates, no need for holds and no expiration dates! Current issues are always available.

To use this service, you must have an Athens Regional Library System card in good standing. Create a free account with RBDigital.com to check out magazines using your library card, then create a free Zinio.com account to read the issues in your web browser or the Zinio app, which is available on both Apple and Android devices. Please note: You can only check out magazines for free through RBdigital.com via the link on the library’s website; you will not be able to check out magazines through Zinio.com or the Zinio App.
Please see a library staff member at your local Athens Regional Library System branch for more information on how to access this service, or visit www.athenslibrary.org/services/library-card-services/zinio-for-libraries to learn more.
