The Pickerington Public Library now offers free downloadable magazines in a digital format.
"Our newest service, called Zinio, offers online subscriptions to hundreds of popular magazines, including titles such as Consumer Reports, Cosmopolitan, Discover, and Newsweek," said Suellen Goldsberry, library director.
"Zinio means no more waiting to check out the latest issues of your favorite magazine," Goldsberry said.
"It's available 24/7 so you can enjoy them anytime," she said, "and there are no late fees."
Magazines borrowed from Zinio can be read online, downloaded to a home computer or accessed with the Zinio App on a smart phone or tablet computer, Goldsberry said.
All patrons need is a valid library card, she said.
More information can be obtained by visiting the library, calling 614-837-4104, or going online at pickeringtonlibrary.org.
