Waimakairiri Libraries' Zinio subscription allows our users to download current issues from a selection of popular magazines - free!

Zinio set-up

  • Log in to the Library Zinio selection (you'll need your library card and PIN) 
  • Once on the site, create a Zinio account (top right). Remember your login and password - you will need it again.
  • Now choose a magazine and check it out. If you are reading on a desktop or laptop computer, just start reading! The magazines are yours to keep (find them all under ‘My Collection’) 
  • For future magazine checkouts, log in again with your Zinio account. 
  • To receive email alerts about new issues, tick the box when you check out.

Reading on a mobile device

  • First create a Zinio account as above.
  • App options for mobile devices and tablets are on the Zinio site. Download the one for your device.
  • Log in your app in using the Zinio account you have just created. Magazines you have checked out will automatically appear in the app ready for download.
  • For magazine checkouts, go to ‘Checkout magazines’ in the app. Your login details will be remembered. Choose magazines and reopen the app to download them.

Any questions, please ask library staff or drop in to one of our eLibrary help sessions.
