Online Magazines! Great selections!

The 29 member libraries of the Upper Hudson Library System (Albany & Rensselaer Counties) offer an amazing selection of magazines to view online through Overdrive. The magazines have been available for a while and patrons are raving about them. The Overdrive link to the right will take you to the magazine collection. Their online help offers great step-by-step directions for accessing the magazines. The first thing you need to do is download the NOOK app, regardless of what device you are using. I read magazines on my iPad and I love it! I am so surprised by the variety of titles I can choose. And more are being added as they become available. I hope you get a chance to check it out. I would much rather be reading current magazines while I am waiting for a doctor, than something that is a year or two old! Try it, I think you’ll be hooked!
