E-magazines free from your library
« on: January 19, 2013, 06:21:26 am »
Don't know if this has been mentioned on here before,
I found out during the week, I have downloaded an app for my ipad called Zinio. Or you can download to your computer, iphone, or tablet. There are 97 e-mags to choose from, better homes and gardens, taste, the o mag to name a few,
You just need to login into your library's web site all the info should be there use your library card number, create an account and then start reading. I am pretty sure this is Australian wide, the good thing is they are the current issue and there is no expiry date, yours to keep for ever and free.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Thanks Jen. I've got the book app, will try for the magazines now. Thanks.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Usually through your local council website, there is a link for the library. You might need to get in contact with you local library to organize a  password. Not sure if you can do that online.

Thanks Jen. Perhaps my local library doesn't link with the app.

Thanks Jen. I'm a member of the Albany Library and I receive emails from them, but they haven't mentioned the e-mags.

Will check it out now.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Great thing with the emags is if you see a recipe or article you want to keep or read later you just capture in a screen shot.

I have checked and I don't think my library does it for magazines. Did your local library site say e magazines Jen? Mine only says ebooks and audio books. Could be my dumb computer skills too
