Zinio is just the latest in a growing number of free Web-based resources offered by the Henry County Library.  Topics available to HCL patrons include, electronic books (Mo to Go), continuing education courses (Learning Express and EBSCO Host, which contains Teen Health & Wellness plus Small Engine & Auto Repair Reference centers), genealogy (Ancestry Library and Heritage Quest) and many other useful sites.
