Is your device compatible? 

You do not need an app to read the magazines on your PC, laptop or Mac. eMagazines can be read on the Library PCs in both browsers but we recommend that you use Chrome.

If you are going to use eMagazines on a PC, Mac or laptop it must have the following system requirements:

  • Windows XP & higher with: Flash 10.1 or higher; Preferred browser: Internet Explorer 8 & higher; Alternative browsers: Firefox 3.6 & higher, Google Chrome
  • Mac OS 10.5 & higher with: Preferred browser: Safari 5 & higher, Firefox 3.6 & higher; Alternative browsers: Google Chrome

If you are going to use eMagazines on a tablet or smartphone

  • Apple, Android and Kindle Fire apps are available for you to download.  Please note you still need to create a Zinio account before you can use these apps.

Downloading and using the app

Once you have downloaded the app to your device the first time you use it you are required to set it up.

Using the app for the first time

1. Make sure you have already created an account in your web browser (See instruction above if needed)
