How do I get started?

Creating your accounts

Using the library's free Zinio magazine subscription service requires two accounts:

1) a Library Zinio account to view the library's collection, and

2) a free Zinio.com account to read magazines online or through the Zinio Reader app.

To create your Library Zinio account:

  • Visit the library Zinio web portal and click the link to Create An Account.
  • Follow the prompts to enter your Oak Park Public Library card number and information.
  • Click the Create Account button to finish. You will receive a welcome email confirming your account.

To create your free Zinio.com account:

  • When you check out your first magazine in the library Zinio web portal, you will be automatically prompted to create and account or sign in.
  • If you do not already have a Zinio.com account, enter your email address and password. You can use the same email and password as your Library Zinio account.
  • If you already have a Zinio account, click Sign In Here. You will be able to see both magazines checked out from the library's collection and your personal paid subscriptions.
  • In your Zinio.com account, your library magazine subscriptions will display in the Read tab.
