ZINIO For Libraries: FREE Online Magazines!

In addition to our print magazines, we are pleased to offer digital copies of more than 100 popular magazines for FREE with Zinio! Get the exact same material you get in print—some issues even include video, audio and links! Magazines aren’t checked out, so there’s no fees AND they’re always available.

You will need to enter your Alexandria library card number and an email address to create an account on Zinio.
See the entire list of Magazines available here.

  • TIP: If you want to select additional magazines after you have made a selection, click on the tab that says “Return to Library Collection”. This will take you to the Library’s collection of magazines.
  • ZINIO IS ALWAYS FREE THROUGH THE LIBRARY. If you see a cost associated with a title you have selected, you have landed on the Zinio company’s main page, instead of going through the Library’s link to the Zinio magazine site, which is: You do not need to buy!
