We are offering 14 magazines, found only in this digital magazine collection.
Read magazines in print-like layout on the internet browser of your computer, laptop, or mobile device. A Wi-Fi connection is strongly recommended. (A mobile app is also available so that you can enjoy magazines on your smartphone or tablet, go to Enjoying magazines on the Flipster App).
Go to Flipster Digital Magazines, enter your library card number (no spaces) and select Sign In.
To open a magazine, click or tap on its cover image or select the Read This Issue link.
The magazine will open up in a separate tab for reading. You can adjust the viewing options using the settings on the column found on the right-hand side of the screen.
Open the most recent issue of a magazine and select the All Issues menu item in the right-hand column.
Note: Older issues can go back up to 2014, depending on the magazine. You may be able to access older articles for some magazines through our MasterFILE Premier collection.
While you can enjoy magazines on the browser of your smartphone or tablet, you can also enjoy them on the Flipster App. The app will let you download magazines for reading offline, and includes text-only viewing options and a text-to-speech reader that can read the magazines articles to you.
The Flipster App available for free from your app store.
