Create Your Accounts
You'll need two accounts to check out and read library digital magazines. The first account lets you check out titles from DBRL's collection. The second account is for your personal Zinio library and lets you read magazines online or through the Zinio Reader apps. Both accounts must use the same email account.
- From the "Browse Magazines" link on magazines.dbrl.org you will be taken to the library's magazine collection page, where you can create a new account by clicking the "Create New Account" link in the upper right corner.
- Enter your library card number. (Don't have a library card yet? Adults can sign up for a card online).
- Enter your name and email address. Choose a password with at least 7 characters and both letters and numbers.
- You'll be directed back to the library's collection page. Browse the magazines and click on one to check it out.
- Click on "Complete Checkout."
- Next, you'll be prompted to create an account with the Zinio service. You must use the same email address that you used in Step 3 above.
- With your Zinio account activated, you'll be taken to your personal Reading List. Click on the magazine and it will open in a browser-based reader.
