Try Zinio, our New Online Magazine Service

I followed what it said in Connections and Library website, but after registering, your supplier (Zinio) is just trying to sell their magazines $3.99 per issue. I am getting no access to borrow and read the e-Magazine. Is this a scam? Else, can you post step by step instructions to borrow these magazines and read for free on the library website? Below are excerpts from the library website & Connections, which do not appear to be accurate. ----------------- The Canton Public Library will soon provide unlimited, simultaneous, digital access to almost 200 of your favorite magazines through a new database called Zinio for Libraries. After setting up a free account, CPL card holders will be able to read current issues cover-to-cover of any these selected titles, as well as be informed via email of future issues. Patrons can read online at any time via a web browser, either inside the library, or remotely on your PC, Mac, iPad, Kindle Fire, iPhone, or Android device. Offline access is also available after downloading an app. The issues are then permanently stored in your "viewer collection." No checkout periods or late fees ----- Starting in April, you'll be able to read over 130 magazines online with around-the-clock access. Zino, a new magazine service, allows 24/7 access to popular titles both in the library and remotely on your computer, iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire or Android device. Just set up a free account, select your magazine and start reading. This service will become available in mid-April; for more information see our website.

Zinio has a commerical site as well as a library site. It's important to follow the path that the library has set for its patrons. Log on to Zinio by clicking on the Zinio icon from our site. After you select the Canton Public Library and type in your Canton Library card number, you will see the screen that contains the step-by-step instruction and also a short how-to video provided by Zinio.
