Library Assistant Karen Little recommends the Library’s magazine and newspaper collection.
They are free. No subscription needed. You’ll be able to read whole articles and see all the pictures. You’ll have the pleasure of holding them in your hands and turning pages with no swiping or clicking. And new ones arrive monthly or quarterly from around the country with content so rich and diverse that it is unlikely you will ever find it on a news feed. Drum roll please!
Introducing print magazines available for check-out at The Community Library.
The magazine and newspaper collection can be found in the Learning Commons, and it holds more than 100 magazines and at least 10 newspapers that include local, regional, and national titles.
The Library keeps a mix of national favorites, such as People, Time, and Vogue, and a large selection of adventure magazines for sports enthusiasts. You’ll also find magazines devoted to cooking, crafts, and diverse lifestyles. The collection also offers eclectic fare like Skeptical Inquirer, The Paris Review, and Astronomy, along with financial magazines and national and foreign policy journals.
A unique regional offering is the Sho-Ban News, the weekly tribal newspaper published on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation.
New to the collection is Orion, a magazine that focuses on nature and culture, and inspires new thinking about how humanity might live on Earth justly and sustainably. A selection of Spanish magazines can be found in the language section of the Library.
