I never got the confirmation email and can't see where to request it be resent.

Sorry you're having trouble. There isn't one simple answer to your question. Please use our technical assistance form and someone can help you.

What a wonderful service! Everyone should have a library card, it can save you so much money. Since joining the Denver Public Library I've canceled my audible account, several magazine print subscriptions, and hardly ever buy eBooks. I owe the DPL a nice donation this year, thanks!

Is this service available to DPL "Group and Business Library Card" holders?

Yes, Zinio is also available for DPL customers with group/business cards.

I keep getting this message when I try to checkout a magazine:


This magazine offer or download page cannot be found.

Hi Lee,
Please fill out our technical assistance form and a staff member should be able to help you.

After we're done reading a downloaded magazine, how do we return it?

There's no need to return the magazine, you can keep it as long as you like on your computer or device. If you want to remove it you can edit your reading list and delete it from your account.

This is an amazing service! Thank you DPL!
