BCPL has partnered with Recorded Books and Zinio to offer free downloadable magazines on your computer or WiFi connected tablet or smart device. The first time you use this service, you will need to set up a library Zinio account. You can also print out our Zinio Tip Sheet [PDF] for easy portable instructions.
