New Online Resources Available

Posted October 03, 2012 in Community Featured, Johnston

Our website just doubled its cool factor thanks to two exciting new electronic resources: Zinio and Freegal.

Zinio allows you to read your favorite magazines online, and Freegal is an exciting new way to download music. The best part about both of these resources —  they are free to you.

Zinio, the world’s largest newsstand, allows Johnston cardholders to access popular magazines online via computer or mobile devices. Our initial launch includes around 50 different titles. This resource represents a true value for Johnston cardholders; not only can you browse individual issues of magazines, Zinio will actually alert you via email when new issues of your favorite magazine are available for you to read. It’s an online subscription to your favorite magazines, and it displays beautifully on your home computer, tablet or smartphone. Check back regularly, since we will be adding additional magazines over the next few months.

Freegal, our second new e-resource, is Johnston Public Library’s offering of free — and legal — downloadable music. Johnston Public Library has purchased a subscription to allow a limited number of free downloads from a catalog of more than three million songs. Our subscription allows up to three individual downloads per week with a limit placed on the total downloads that can be done by all users for each week. And once songs are downloaded they are yours to keep —no return dates or late fees here.

Check out these great new online resources at www.johnstonlibrary.com and stop in to the library to tell us what you think. We hope you are as excited about Zinio and Freegal as we are.
