Mesa, AZ –Mesa Library card holders can now access eAudio books and digital magazines all through OneClickdigital and Zinio for Libraries starting today.
 
In partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD), OneClickdigital offers patrons a wide range of audiobooks, recorded books, classics and selections for children, young adults and Spanish language books.  Zinio for Libraries will give patrons the capability to view more than 90 popular magazines such as “Consumer Reports”, “Good Housekeeping” and “The Oprah Magazine” and more from their digital device.
 
“I am very excited about offering both services to our patrons,” Mesa Library Director, Heather Wolf said. “Zinio for Libraries is the world’s largest digital newsstand and OneClickdigital will give patrons free access to eAudio at home, in the library, or on the go. Both services allow for multiple users on many titles so, at any given time the same title can be checked out eliminating holds.”
 
These services are free for all Mesa Library card holders and can be accessed through the Library’s website: www.mesalibrary.org.  There is no late charge and eAudio books and digital magazines can be returned to the Library at any time.
 
Funding for this service was made possible through a grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services which supports libraries in Arizona through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) program.
