Magazines are now available for free online access in Wisconsin's Digital Library (WDL)!
In addition to e-books, digital audiobooks and videos, WDL now includes more than 3,000 magazines.
These magazines are available for simultaneous use statewide (no waiting lists) and may be accessed using the Libby app, the OverDrive app or the WDL website. You just need your library card to log in.
Each magazine can be borrowed for a maximum of 21 days, and you can even check out and read back issues!
To view this collection:
- visit https://wplc.overdrive.com/collections/featured/4;
- OR in the WDL main menu, select "Collections" and use the "Magazines" list;
- OR in the Libby app, select "Preferences" and choose "Format: Magazines," then "Apply Preferences."
This new digital magazine collection was made possible by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium and contributions from a number of Wisconsin library systems and public libraries, including Milwaukee County Federated Library System, Manitowoc-Calumet Library System, Monarch Library System, Nicolet Library System, Brookfield Public Library, Brown County Library, Kenosha County Public Library, and McMillan Memorial Library.
