Join us Friday, September 18th from 2:00-4:00 for The Age of Adaline.
After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.

Have a smartphone? A tablet? Some other cool device that downloads apps?  If the answer is yes, you should download one of our fantastic apps – Bookmyne, Zinio, 3M and OneClickDigital.

Bookmyne:

For checking your library account and placing holds, use Bookmyne.  Bookmyne is a mobile app that allows catalog searching, placing holds, barcode scanning and more!  You can learn more about it here.  We like it because the new version is easy to use and simple.  You will need your Library Card Number and PIN to register.

Below are the QR codes that you can scan and download with a QR scanner.  Or you can click on “Android” or “Apple” and it will take you to the respective app store, where you can also download it.

We also now have digital magazines with Zinio for Libraries!   This new service is available to resident library card holders.

We have subscriptions to 46 different magazines!   These magazines are available electronically, and are identical to the print version, including ads.  To access our digital magazines, you must visit Zinio’s website (you can also visit the Zinio link under the eReading tab on the Library’s website), and create an account.  This is a very simple process.   You will need your library barcode number and a working email address.

It is important to remember your login information after you’ve created an account, since you will also use it to utilize the Zinio for Libraries app (smartphones, tablets, etc.).  Your email address is your username.

If you have any questions or need any help, look at Zinio’s Help Page, which is very thorough.  They have user guides and video tutorials for PCs, Macs, iPhones, Androids, and more.  It also has an online support form and email addresses for technical assistance.  Please reach out to them with any technical issues.  The Library cannot help retrieve forgotten username (your email address) or password information.

You can read magazines online, via your internet browser, or via an app.  All magazine selections must be made online through your internet browser.  The app only allows you to read titles you have already checked out.

When downloading the app, you must download the Zinio for Libraries app, not just “Zinio”.  Your login information will not work with the Zinio app.  When opening the app for the first time, you will have to login.  The app uses this logo:
