Read Digital Magazines at your Branch

Picture this:  You walk into the library and see that the magazines and newspapers are back on display.  The comfy chairs have returned and you are free to sit and enjoy some quiet time while you catch up on the news, the new Hollywood scandal, or trying to find the perfect recipe for dinner. You go to the shelf but the magazine or newspaper you are looking for is gone, and you see there is another patron already reading it!  Well, you could just wait for them to finish, but you only have an hour to spend in the library!

We have the solution to your problem with our In-house Circulating Periodical Tablets! You can sit in the library and read magazines and newspapers from around the world. Check out a tablet with your library card. Tablets circulate for 1 hour, but can be renewed if you need longer.
