Mid-Wisconsin Federated Library Systems is proud to present Zinio Digital Magazine!


Mid Wisconsin Federated Library System is proud to present Zinio, an online platform for reading your favorite magazines. With Zinio, your patrons can log in with their library card and access 100 popular magazine titles.

What is Zinio?

Zinio is a service that allows library patrons to read many of their favorite magazines on a computer or on their favorite e-reader or smartphone. Patrons must first set up a Zinio library account, and then a Zinio viewer account. The Zinio library account allows them to gain access to the MWFLS collection of magazine titles. The Zinio viewer account is used to access & read the magazine issues they choose.

How do patrons set up their accounts?

Step 1:  Patrons must create a Zinio library account. To do this, they must go to https://www.rbdigital.com/midwisconsinwi/zinio Patrons must enter an email address and their library barcode and click "Create Account". A confirmation email will be sent to that specified email address. To confirm the creation of the account, the patron must log in to her/his email, and click the confirmation link provided. Once this is complete he/she will then be able to browse & select issues of magazines from the library collection page  -https://www.rbdigital.com/midwisconsinwi/zinio- they need to come back to this page whenever they wish to get new magazines

Step 2:  Patrons must then create a Zinio viewer account. This is the account they use to read their magazines. To create the viewer account, they must go to https://www.zinio.com/account/login.jsp and click "create account". From there, they'll work through a quick series of web forms to create their account. Once this step is done, they will be able to access their magazine issues.

AN IMPORTANT TIP: Remind patrons that they should use the same email address/password for each Zinio account (that is, for BOTH their Zinio library account and Zinio viewer account).

Can I use an ereader or tablet to view my Zinio magazines?

Yes. Zinio apps are available for Apple, Android, and most other major ereaders. Simply search for "zinio" in the app store related to your device (examples: Apple iTunes Store, Google Marketplace). Users of the Kindle Fire can find directions to get zinio on their device by visiting this page.
