NoveList

NoveList is a readers' advisory service covering all types of fiction.
It was selected as a Library Journal Best Reference Database. It also offers a wide range of other resources like author and series searches, along with book reviews. With over 100,000 titles listed, along with 75,000 full text reviews, over 36,000 subject headings and a complete spectrum of searching options, NoveList gives both flexibility and power to even the most discriminating reader. Use the "Find a Favorite Author" or "Find A Favorite Title" feature to locate a list of John Grisham's titles, and then use one of these titles to find more than 200 legal thrillers. It also uses natural language searching to search NoveList's full-text reviews to find "fast-paced thrillers" or books that make good "read aloud" titles for a storytime or children's program.

Zinio - Digital Magazines

Zinio - Digital Magazines

Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand and it is now available @ your library! You can now read select library magazine subscriptions free online and on most handheld devices. All you need is your Findlay-Hancock County Public Library card number and a valid email address to get started.

BEFORE JUMPING IN, IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS LOCATED here. It explains that you will be creating two separate accounts using the same email account. Then, you will download the app from your device’s online store (i.e. Android Market, Apple App Store).

Ready to read? Start choosing your magazines here.  If you have questions, please contact the Adult Services Department at 419-422-1712, ext. 245. 

For a complete list of the library's magazines click here.

Please note

The Zinio Reader is not currently compatible with Windows Mobile, Blackberry (or other PDA's) or reading devices such as the Sony Reader, Nooks or Kindle(original)
- although we are working now to expand the capabilities of the Zinio Reader to include more mobile devices.

Unfortunately, if you own a Nook device, your ability to use the Zinio app in the future will depend on Barnes & Noble adding the Zinio app to the "Nook Apps" store (the default configuration of the Nook Color does not allow installing apps directly from the Android Market).
