I love to knit and even run a high school knitting club, so I am always looking for what’s new in the knitting world. There are free patterns galore on the internet but I also like to read stories from other knitter’s about their experiences with the craft, and learn about new products coming out, and collect tips of the trade. In addition to reading books about knitting, I also enjoy reading magazines about knitting. I enjoy all the bright spreads of people wearing finished projects and even like to peruse the advertisements for different merchandise. Of course, like everyone, time is always a problem with work and family so I thought I would check out our Matawan-Aberdeen Public Library (MAPL) webpage and click on electronic resources. There is was, Zinio, offering interactive digital magazines and you guessed it! It is FREE! All you need is your trusty library card.
Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand and you don’t even get rained on while making your selections. It offers full color, digital magazines for your enjoyment. Browse from the library’s collection of popular titles with no holds, no checkout periods, and no limit to the number of magazines you can download. Just click on “Electronic Resources” on our Matawan-Aberdeen Public Library Homepage and select “Magazines and Journals.” You will see Zinio listed and then just click on the Instructions for creating an account and using zinio. Search magazines by topics, genres (cooking, gardening, etc.) or by title. You can even select the magazines in English or Spanish. You can “shop” at home in your pajamas for the magazines of your choice for free! What a great deal!
