Once you have an account, you will be able to read e-zines in your computer’s browser.  To read on a mobile device, download the Zinio app.  Zinio apps are available for your computer, iPhone, iPad, Android device, Kindle Fire, and Blackberry.  Once a magazine is downloaded to your device, it’s yours to keep!
