“Anyone with a GVPL card will be able to sign into the digital magazine collection and instantly read a magazine,” said GVPL CEO Maureen Sawa.

“We are very excited about this service, as it adds another piece to our popular digital collection which already includes hoopla digital, the 3M Cloud Library and eBooks through OverDrive.”

There is no limit to the number of magazines you can check out and no need to return them. There are no holds, you can access the most current issues and you can even be notified by email when the latest issue of your favourite magazine is available.

The catalogue includes popular newsstand magazines, such as Martha Stewart Living, Allure, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Wired, GQ, Details, Rolling Stone, Glamor and Oprah, as well as National Geographic, Conde Nast Traveler, Bon Appetit, Mac World and Newsweek. Niche magazines such as Gluten-Free Living, Bicycling, Organic Gardening, Birdwatching, Quilting Arts Magazine and Guitar Player are also available.
