Common Questions

1. Why do I need to log in twice?

Your first login is to show that you have a Newton County Library card, so you can add subscriptions for free. The second is the Zinio login so you can use their site.

2. What if I want a magazine that Newton County Library doesn't provide?

You may still subscribe, but you will need to pay for it yourself. If you are already logged in from the Newton County Library site, click Account Settings from the menu on the top, then Shop, in the upper left. If you go directly to Zinio.com, just click Shop.
