Magazines and Newspapers

stack of open magazines

The library subscribes to a wide variety of magazines and newspapers for adults, young adults, and children.

Most magazines circulate for 14 days, and can be renewed up to 2 times (as long as the item is not on hold for another patron). Newspapers, due to their timely content and frail construction, are for in-library use only.

 

 

The library also offers digital magazine subscriptions, available online 24/7 for viewing in your browser or downloading to a mobile device! Check out Flipster Digital Magazines for more information.
