Get to know your incredible Cloquet Public LibraryPublic library services continue to evolve as technology advances.
By: Mary Lukkarila, Pine Journal
We would like to welcome you to visit the Cloquet Public Library in person and virtually.
Did you know that many of our services are available online 24/7? Public library services continue to evolve as technology advances. You can download free apps such as Overdrive, Zinio, and BookMyne to your mobile device to take advantage of your library’s mobile services. All you need is your library card to download free e-books, audio books, and e-magazines through Overdrive and Zinio. BookMyne allows you to reserve library materials and keep track of items you have checked out.
Information is easily accessed now in many different ways. The public library has become the place to help people navigate through the different channels of information. For those not comfortable with the digital age, the Cloquet Public Library still offers a variety of new books, books on disk, DVDs and magazines. Many of us will always want to walk through the library stacks browsing for the right book to read rather than browse online.
The good news is that you can choose how you want your information delivered to you. Did you receive as a gift an e-book reading device such as a Nook or Kindle and you don’t know how to use it? Let us show how to access our free e-book and e-magazine services on it.
Our latest digital service is called Zinio. It is a free digital magazine service that can be read on your computer or digital device. To download the current issue, you will need your valid Arrowhead or Duluth library card.
To access the library’s Zinio account, click on the link on the Cloquet Public Library website or type in the url: https://www.rbdigital.com/arrowheadmn/service/zinio/landing ?
First-time Zinio users will be asked to set up two accounts. First you will set up a personal account with Zinio, and then set up your library account. If you need assistance with this, please call us at 218-879-1531. Free Zinio reader apps are available for the following devices: PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, Win 8 and Blackberry. Choose from magazines such as Peterson’s 4 Wheel & Off Road, BirdWatching, Cabin Life, Canoe & Kayak, Country Living, Digital Photo, Games, Gluten-Free Living, Hockey News, Mental Floss and many other popular magazines.
Downloaded items have no due date and will not expire. Delete issues from “your library” at your convenience. Only the current issue is available to download.
This service is funded by the Cloquet Shaw Memorial Public Library Foundation, Arrowhead Library System, and public libraries in our region.
