LAKE CITY – The Missaukee District Library is pleased to announce that over 3,000 popular magazines are now available to download and read on any device 24/7. For the first time, users with a library card can read digital magazines alongside ebooks and audiobooks on Libby, OverDrive’s award-winning reading app, or by visiting www.missaukeelibrary.org.

We’re glad customers have another reading option. The library is limited to fewer physical copies of magazines. Having over 3,000 magazine titles available really opens up new worlds for all customers able to use the Libby app.

A sampling of digital magazines available include: The New Yorker, Reader’s Digest, Prevention, PC Magazine, Ok!, Newsweek, New Scientist, National Geographic Kids, National Geographic, Money Magazine, HGTV Magazine, Food Network, Cook’s Illustrated, Yoga, Women’s Health, Wired, Vogue and us.

Digital magazines have no waitlists or holds, do not count against payment limits, and offer readers the opportunity to renew their selections. Missaukee District Library customers can also download magazines from Libby for offline use. Readers can browse magazine listings in the app and search by format to find available titles.

Named one of the Top 20 Apps of the Decade by Popular Mechanics, Libby seamlessly connects new users and experienced readers to the Missaukee District Library’s digital collection. This locally curated collection features eBooks, audiobooks, and digital magazines, including bestsellers and new releases. Readers of all ages can choose from virtually any topic ranging from mystery, romance, kids, business and more.

Readers can browse the digital collection, instantly borrow titles, and start reading or listening for free with a valid library card. This service is compatible with all major computers and devices, iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Chromebook™. Thanks to Libby, readers can also “send to Kindle®” [U.S. only]. All titles will automatically expire at the end of the loan period and there are no late fees. Readers can also download titles from Libby for offline use.
