The Windham Public Library offers access to downloads through four services: our 3M Cloud Library, our subscriptions through Zionio, the Maine Infonet Download Library, and the use of our library’s eReaders. Using one of our download libraries allows you to load eBooks and eAudios to your device. Don’t have a device but curious how eReaders work? Borrow one of our devices, which are pre-loaded with eBooks. Read below for more information about each of these services.
Windham Public Library owns all of the downloadable eBooks and eAudios which are in our 3M Cloud Library, and the collection will continue to grow each year. The downloads are available for free to all Windham Public Library card holders with an active, 14-digit account in good standing.
The Zinio service makes digital magazines available without having to leave the comfort of your home! The downloads are available for free to all Windham Public Library card holders with an active, 14-digit account in good standing.
- Our collection includes current issues of 50 digital magazines.
- The digital magazines are full-print, full-color duplicates of the print magazine.
- There is no limit– you can download as many magazines as you’d like.
- Magazines can be read online or offline.
- The magazines never expire (no overdue fines!) so you can hang on to them as long as you want.
- Zinio Reader apps are available for all major devices.
Getting started is as easy as…
1– First time users will need to create an accounts with Zinio through the RB Digital Gateway website
2– Browse the collection and select a magazine.
3– Click CHECKOUT* If you want to load the magazines on your device, you will also need to get the appropriate app. App selections are available near the CHECKOUT button.
* Attention iPad and Android Users – after checking out a magazine in your browser, you will need to login to the app. To login, select Country = United States; State = Maryland; Library Name = Popular 50 eMagazine Collection and then enter your email/password. Our library name will not appear in the drop down box, so this is very important.
