Pekin, IL (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

Pekin Public Library (Pekin, IL), in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD), is pleased to announce the availability of Zinio for Libraries. Awarded Best New Database of 2012 by Library Journal, Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications.

Through the library’s website, patrons of Pekin Public Library have unlimited multi-user access to complete digital magazines, which can easily be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio’s unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. “Family Circle,” “Every Day with Rachael Ray,” “Field & Stream,” “Ladies Home Journal,” “PC World,” and “Taste of Home” are just a few of the popular titles that are available.

“The Pekin Library is excited to expand our digital offerings to include magazines,” said Alissa Williams, Pekin Public Library Assistant Director. “Magazines are now available anytime—even when the library is closed. And readers don’t need to wait to have access to their favorite magazines since Zinio offers simultaneous access.”
