Zinio Magazine Service

Zinio is a digital magazine service that provides access to popular and recreational magazines. Zinio offers a quick and easy way for our library customers to read digital copies of their favourite magazines. Using a PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet, you will be able to access Bradford Libraries’ selected digital magazines from wherever you are.

How to get started

Create a Bradford Libraries Zinio account

You will need to register for a free account to use the Bradford Libraries Zinio service. Sign up now using your Bradford library card number (do not include the "R" at the start). You will also be asked for your name, email address and a password. Zinio will send you a joining email. Just follow the link in the email to activate your account.

Select your magazines

The next step is to browse the magazines and select which titles you wish to read. There is no limit, so there is nothing to stop you selecting all the magazines to which the library has subscribed.

You will then need to register for a separate Zinio account to read and manage your magazines. This personal Zinio account can be customised to show only the magazines you wish to read.

Zinio software and apps you may need

From a PC or a Mac you can use Adobe Flash to read most magazines online, but some magazines require you to use Zinio Reader 4 software. This software will even allow you read magazines offline. You can download Zinio Reader for PC/Mac.

If you have a smartphone or tablet, there are apps available for the following devices:
