Library opens up e-magazine access

ORL has subscribed to an online service and is providing access to digital editions of magazines.

Do you love flipping through your favourite magazine on your tablet, smart phone, or computer? Now you can do it for free with your Okanagan Regional Library membership.

ORL has subscribed to an online service called Zinio and is providing access to dozens of complete digital editions of popular magazines.

“Customers just need to hit the reference and research button on the ORL home page and scroll down to the Zinio link,” said Chantelle McGee,                     virtual branch head.

“From there, customers can use their e-mail address and library card to sign in and view the collection, and then create a Zinio account when they find magazines they would like to read.”

Popular titles in the Zinio collection include Consumer Reports, Car and Driver, Elle, Good Housekeeping, Newsweek, Rolling Stone and many more.
