A library card is not required in order to read the latest issues of your favorite magazines or newspapers here. But with a valid library card, you can also check out older issues to read at home. Older issues are located in the storage area underneath the most recent issues and may be checked out for three weeks. Why spend money on subscriptions with this large collection of magazines and newspapers to choose from?
The Periodical Room (found behind our Adult Fiction collection, near the Study Room) is a cozy, well-lit room with lots of comfortable chairs. This is a great place to relax while you are waiting for someone in the library, or if you just have a few extra minutes while you are in town.
Don't forget, you can also bring your laptop or mobile device to connect to the library’s free Wi-Fi service.
