Zinio update and access to more titles

Pulp-less Fiction: Digital Downloads

This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray.  The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today.   -Beth

Zinio downloadable magazines

Zinio, the downloadable magazine service from Recorded Books, has been updating their system.  Due to the update, patrons who already have an account will need to register again.  You are allowed to use the same password and information as before.  The upgrade should not affect your previous magazine subscriptions.  If you are new to Zinio, you will click "Create Account" and follow the instructions.


More of our 100 chosen magazine titles will be available now that the update is complete.  They will appear individually rather than as a group, so check back occasionally to access new subscriptions. Thank you for your patience while Recorded Books Digital completes the changes.
