Borrowing magazines on OverDrive

Read your favorite magazines online for free and whenever you want with OverDrive.

Read your favorite magazines online for free and whenever you want with OverDrive.

You already know that you can borrow ebooks and audiobooks from OverDrive with your library card. (More than ever, now that we’ve joined CLEVNET.)

You may even know that you can use OverDrive to stream videos to your favorite device.

But did you know that you can use OverDrive to read current and back issues of your favorite magazine? It’s true! You can borrow digital editions of Popular Science, Gourmet, HGTV, Reader’s Digest, O The Oprah Magazine and more for free.

You can “check out” as many as issues as you want and read them at their convenience for the next 21 days. You can access them via desktop or the OverDrive or Libby apps. (The apps are free from the Google Play and Apple stores.) All issues automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees.

By the way, you can also borrow digital issues of popular magazines with Flipster.

You can check out both new and back issues of 56 different magazines with Flipster, including People, Atlantic, Times, Cosmopolitan, Bon Appetit, Highlights, New Yorker, Money, Redbook, Rolling Stone, US Weekly, Vogue and Teen Vogue, Wired, Runner’s World, Women’s Health, Zoobooks, and Vanity Fair.

And we’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: All of these digital services and more are available without additional cost. All you need is your Mentor Public Library card.
