OverDrive Introduces Digital Magazines to its Line-up

Harris County Public Library is now offering a second way to access digital editions of the latest magazines. OverDrive has now added periodicals to its already varied roster of formats (which includes eBooks & eAudiobooks). Just like on Flipster, our other digital magazine service, OverDrive's digital mags are not "lite" online versions. They are identical to the newsstand editions down to the last period.

What's more, when you download an OverDrive magazine to your iOS or Android device, you get to keep it as long as you want...as in forever...free of charge...no strings attached and no library fines…ever. How cool is that?

Read Magazines Online! Flipster is here for you!

In case you missed the notice on our homepage, you can now read your favorite magazines on your computer, Android or Apple tablet, or Kindle Fire. If you download the free Flipster app you can even save an issue to read later offline.

You can also:
Print articles and pictures straight from your browser.
Keyword search within an issue and scan tables of contents in the Content Gallery.
Read back issues you might have missed.

Current Issues

Did you know that the library maintains an up-to-date selection of magazines and periodicals?  Whether you are looking for fashion advice, sports news, or celebrity gossip, chances are, we have something for you.  Newspapers and current magazine issues may be read in the library but cannot be checked out.  For those patrons who are interested in local news, we carry bulletins and newspapers from our surrounding community.  You can also enjoy digital editions of some periodicals on one of our three ipads.  If you haven't used an ipad before, swing by the circulation desk and check one out.
