You will need your WYLD library card number and PIN to create a Recorded Books Digital account (if you are not in a library building). Using Google Play (or the Microsoft app store if you are using a Microsoft product), download the Zinio app to your Android device. You will also need to create an account with Zinio to manage your subscriptions.
