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:

FARFROMMAD

Our next free movie is Far From the Madding Crowd!  Join us on Friday, August 21 before 2pm to watch this classic inspired film.

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance. Rated PG-13 for some sexuality and violence; 1 hour, 59 minutes.

Keep up with the library! We’re on Twitter, Facebook, WordPress and now Pinterest.

Sadly, it’s nearing the end of summer, and that means the end of our Summer Concert Series.  Join us for our final two fantastic groups and finish the summer with a bang!
