Getting Started With Zinio

For step-by-step instructions, download this user guide.

To use the library's Zinio magazine collection, you must have a Bloomingdale Public Library card. Always start at the library's Zinio website to add new magazine issues. We recommend bookmarking this site in your web browser, since you will return to this site often.

You must create two accounts for Zinio - one to use the library collection and a second to view the magazines in a Zinio Viewer account. For ease of use, we recommend using the same login and password for both. The Zinio app or website is for viewing magazines only, not for checking out magazine titles. Checking out magazines requires toggling back and forth between the library's Zinio website and the Zinio app. The library will never ask you for your credit card information. If you are asked for this information, you are in the wrong place!

Once you have checked out your magazine on the library's Zinio website, you can view the title in the Zinio app or website. Download the free Zinio app on Apple's App Store or Google Play to view magazines on your mobile device. Login in with your account and then select Read at the top of the page to access your library titles. Remember to return to the library's Zinio website using a web browser whenever you wish to add new issues. The library collection has no checkout period or issue limit.

If you need help using Zinio, please contact the Adult Services Desk at 630-924-2730 or sign up for one of the library's Downloadable Resources training sessions.
