    *Kindle Fire: some patrons are reporting that they are unable to find Zinio in the Amazon AppStore. Here is a workaround.

    The Zinio app cannot be used to browse the Library's free Zinio magazine collection. Library patrons must view and subscribe to magazines using the browser on a computer or smart device! Patrons must be 17 to use the app on a tablet or mobile device.

    Use the "Read" tab of the Zinio app to view the Library magazines checked out.
