Important Information - Please Note

You can only check out magazines for free via the Zinio Library portal. If you subscribe to any magazine directly through Zinio.com or the Zinio app - you will be charged for it.

Zinio.com and the Zinio app offer "Free Samples" but these are not free magazines from the Library. If you choose to partake of any of these "Free Samples" you will be asked to pay for them after a certain number of issues.

Zinio.com may send you emails offering you the opportunity to pay for a subscription to a magazine that you receive through the Library portal. You do not have to pay for any magazine that you checked out through the Library portal.

To opt out of promotional emails from Zinio, sign in to your account at Zinio.com, hover over your name in the upper-right and click Account settings. On your account settings page, click Preferences on the left and change your Email Preferences. You cannot change your Email Preferences through the Zinio app – these changes must be made by logging into your account on the Zinio.com wesbite.
