How-to Video

This service requires the creation of two account logins -- a Potsdam Library - Zinio account to check out magazines from the library's collection, and a free Zinio.com account for downloading and reading magazines.

1 - On the Zinio page, Log in or Create New Account located at the top of the page on the right hand side. You will need your Potsdam Library card to create the account.

2 - Browse the available magazine titles and select the magazine(s) of your choice. You can check out as many magazines as you wish, click on complete checkout to finish your selection.

3 - After you select a magazine from our collection, a second browser window will open to Zinio.com. Follow the "sign in here" link or create a free Zinio.com account if this is your first time (we recommend using the same log-in information used for your Potsdam Library-Zinio account).

4 - After checking out a magazine, you can read it online or with a Zinio Reader app.

Zinio Apps

Zinio magazines may be read on a wide variety of apps available for many mobile devices, including: PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad Android devices, Kindle Fire, Blackberry and Nook HD. Use your Zinio.com login to register the app on your device. The apps can be downloaded from the links at the bottom of the Zinio page or from the places that you normally download apps.

The Zinio app cannot be used to browse the Library's collection of free magazines. View and choose magazines using a web browser. After you have chosen your magazines, they will be available in your mobile app.
