Attention E-Mag Readers!

Due to decreasing usage and limited titles, ACLA will be dropping our Flipster subscription as of December 31, 2022. However, there is good news for E-Magazine readers! We have two other services which offer many more titles for you to check out and flip through, digitally and on the go.

Overdrive/Libby: We currently offer over 4,000 issues of popular magazines in our Overdrive/Libby collection. Titles are always available, and there is no limit on the number you can borrow each month! Magazine issues can be checked out for up to 21 days and downloaded to a mobile device for off-WiFi enjoyment. You can find the magazine collection in the Libby app or at

Hoopla BingePass: A newer addition is the “BingePass” feature in Hoopla, which allows unlimited 7-day access to their magazine collection using only one of your 15 per month checkouts. So if you borrow a BingePass each week, you can have constant and unlimited access to Hoopla’s 90+ titles! Note that this is a streaming service, so an internet connection is required to read. Hoopla’s BingePass is located under the “More” section in the app or at

Visit our eLibrary at for more information, or feel free to reach out to your local library for help getting started with one of these great E-Magazine services. Happy reading!

Unfortunately, we are also losing access to a few titles, including Ladies Home Journal and Publisher’s Weekly.  Back issues of all discontinued titles will continue to be available.  If you’d like to see a complete list of all new and discontinued titles, check here.

There are a few other changes as well.  You may have noticed that patrons are now be required to select their home library. New users, as well and patrons with an existing Zinio account, will be prompted to select their home library from a drop-down list.  They will only be asked to do this once.

Perhaps the best news of all is that the process of logging into Zinio promises to be streamlined soon.  There will be a single sign-on rather than the current (somewhat confusing) process that has users registering on both the library and the commercial site. Stay tuned for further updates!
