Magazines, Movies and Audio books!

Posted on June 6, 2013 at 12:00 AM by Craig Jacobson

Maybe you already know that libraries aren’t just depositories of books, but also carry magazines, newspapers, music CDs, audio books and movies.  Maybe you’ve come to the library for the latest issue of People, or to get an audio book to listen to on a long car trip, or you’ve requested an Oscar-winning movie that just came out on DVD.  Maybe you’ve even learned how to use Overdrive to access books to read on a tablet, mobile device or e-reader.

Now there are three new resources you may not know about:  just as you can access e-books with your library card through Overdrive, you now have free access to online magazines, audio books and movies via Zinio, OneClickdigital, and Indieflix.   

zinio.jpgZinio is the world’s largest digital newsstand.  There are over one hundred titles to choose from, including Consumer Reports, Family Circle, National Geographic, and Newsweek.  You can browse through a magazine on your laptop or tablet, or even sign up to receive the next issue in your email.  The digital edition contains the exact same content that you get in print, plus exclusive features like audio, video, and live links.  To start browsing, go to the Weyenberg Library website and click on Zinio.  You’ll need to enter your library card number and set up an account.  If you have any trouble, stop by the adult reference desk for a sheet of instructions.

Access to this service greatly increases the number of audio books available to you.  For example, if you wanted to listen to Jodi Picoult’s The Storyteller by requesting the CDs through Easicat,   you would have to wait for several other patrons who have placed holds on that title, and you would find it is not yet available in Overdrive, but is immediately available through OneClickdigital.  Just click on OneClickdigital on the Weyenberg Library website.

We hope you’ll enjoy these subscription services available to you for free with your library card.
