Below are a few tips to share with patrons:

  • Since we our subscription just started, we only have the most recent issues available. As new issues are released, they will be added to our collection.
  • All eMagazines are always available.
  • Patrons can check out as many eMagazines as they would like, and eMagazine checkouts do not count towards a patron’s checkout limit of 20 titles at a time.
  • While eMagazines are not renewable, there are no holds so eMagazines are always available.
  • After downloading an eMagazine, patrons can keep them until the due date just like other OverDrive content. As with eBooks and eAudiobooks, eMagazines remain checked out to a patron until the patron either manually returns it or the loan period expires.
