eMagazines are magazines that can be read on a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Your library card gives you free access to over 3,000 eMagazines, which can be borrowed and downloaded to your devices.  Choose from a variety of amazing eMagazines covering everything from fashion, home and garden to sport and current affairs.
