Libraries offer free e-zines
Kaipara residents can get the latest and best in magazines online, with Zinio for Libraries.
Kaipara District Council, Far North District Council and Whangarei District Council have partnered to provide the first combined libraries eMagazine service in New Zealand.
Zinio eMagazine provides Kaipara library members with access to a big range of latest edition magazines, often before print editions hit the newsstands. These digital editions have the same layout on screen as on paper, with photographs, graphics and for some, interactive content as well.
One of the extra bonuses with eMagazine is that they’re free and users don’t have to worry about overdue fines, because the magazines can be kept for as long as the borrowers want them. And people can have as many as they want.
Northland Libraries Zinio eMagazines provides a wide range of well-known magazines covering lots of different interests; gardening, lifestyle, art, cooking, fishing, news, music, teens and recreation.
It’s easy to use on PCs, Macs, streaming or downloaded via the Zinio for Libraries app onto tablets or smartphones. Share, print or email favourite magazines too.
Kaipara District Council Libraries Manager Lisa Salter says the service expands on the Council’s existing online borrowing services.
“People want their favourite titles readily available wherever they are. We’re already providing books online and it seems logical that we provide our library members with ready access to magazines and lighter reading as well.
“Partnering with the other Northland councils has brought this about and fits with the closer working relationships we have developed to achieve better services for our ratepayers.”
