Create Accounts, Browse and Subscribe

Using the library’s free Zinio magazine subscription service requires the creation of two accounts—a library Zinio account to view the library’s collection and a free Zinio.com account to read magazines online or via the Zinio Reader app on your mobile device.  Kindle Fire users - please download the app from the Zinio site, not from Amazon.  Follow these steps to create both accounts.

Ebooks for Kindle - Please see Overdrive Help page for latest information on your device. http://www.overdrive.com/drc/

Log into your account with your library card and your PIN.  Your PIN is usually the last four numbers of your library card. Browse or search for a title available for Kindle and check it out. Click the Get for Kindle and a new window will open to Amazon.com. If you are not already logged in with your Amazon account you will need to do that before you can click the "download" link. The item will download to your Kindle the next time it has wireless access, or you can download it manually using the USB/Charging cord.

Things to remember for Kindle

  • eBooks check out for 14 or 21 days. You can change the default for both in your account.
  • Audiobooks in WMA format will not play on Kindles.
  • Audiobooks in MP3 format will play on Kindles.
  • No Late Fees! Items stop working when the checkout period is over.
  • Only 4 items can be checked out at a time. Audiobooks cannot be returned early.
  • eBooks can be returned early from the Manage Your Kindle tab on Amazon.com

If you use our Overdrive service to borrow ebooks, at some point you needed to authorize your device with an

Adobe ID. Please read Adobe’s recent notice about an attack that exposed some of their customer information

illegally. You may have already gotten an email from Adobe stating that your password has been changed. 

This may not affect your use of the Overdrive ebooks on your device currently, but may affect you in the future.

For example, if you get a new ereader and try to authorize it with your current Adobe ID and your original

password, the authorization will fail. If you have purchased ebooks using that same Adobe ID you could lose

access to them if you don’t have the updated password.


To avoid the danger of responding to a phishing scam that only looks like the official email from Adobe, it’s

probably best not to click on the link in the email. For instructions on how to change your password the

safest way, please scroll down to “How to change your password” in the Adobe notice. Doing it this way will

also allow to you choose your own password.
