Book Talk Live! @ Your
Library-Now at two times to accommodate schedules!
Starting October 3rd, the Livingston County
Library’s newest book group, Book Talk Live!, will held two different
times to accommodate schedules. Held the first Thursday of every month
at noon and now 7pm, Book Talk Live! is not a traditional book group.
Instead of all participants reading the same book, this book group is
centered around discussing what participants are reading now, or what
they’ve read recently that they really enjoy, or in some cases, dislike.
Livingston County Library is pleased to announce the availability of
Zinio for libraries, an online database that offers unlimited access
to complete digital magazines. This allows library patrons to have
access to 34 magazines, including Us Weekly, Newsweek, Taste of Home,
Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and National Geographic on their
computer or other mobile device. This service is available through the
Online Resources page (a user guide
and video can be found here, also). This service is available to Library
patrons with a valid library card number.
Because of the unlimited, simultaneous option of Zinio, magazines do
not have a return date, nor does a patron have to wait for other patrons
to finish a magazine before they can check it out. There are current
issues and each person can check out as many magazines as they want.
This also means that if there is something you want to keep from a
magazine you can leave the magazine on your computer or mobile device
for as long as you like.
Zinio for Libraries was named the database of the year by Library
Journal in 2012.
Zinio works with iPads, iPhones, PCs, Macs, Android devices, Kindle
Fire, Kindle Fire HD, Nook HD, Blackberry and Windows 8 tablets.
In addition to the User Guide and Video available on the
Online Resources page, instructions
are also available at the Library.

For information about Zinio or to get your library card number, please
