Zinio is a multi-platform distribution service for digital magazines. Library patrons will be able to access these magazines through a web browser or on custom apps for Apple iOS, Android and Windows 8 smartphones and tablets, and download magazines to read offline. In 2011, Zinio began partnering with Recorded Books to offer "Zinio for Libraries", a service that allows public libraries in the US access to full digital issues of selected magazines via a digital catalog, with the use of a library card and without holds, checkout periods, or maximum quantities.
Recorded Books is the largest independent publisher of unabridged audiobooks and provider of digital content to public libraries. The company owns an exclusive catalog of over 13,500 audiobook titles narrated by professional, award-winning actors. Recorded Books provides digital audiobooks and eBooks to libraries through the Richland Hills Public Library web page.
Learning how to navigate libraries offering digital materials can be overwhelming. That is why the Richland Hills Public Library is offering a new service called “Book-A-Librarian”. Call ahead and book a private learning session with one of our staff members if you need assistance with a digital reader or if you would like help setting up an email account or learn basic computer skills. Book-A-Librarian will be offered on Tuesdays from 5 – 8 p.m. and Fridays from 10 – 5 p.m. For help, please call (817) 616-3761.
