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?

We have a great selection with something for everyone:

  • for Gamers and Techies: Game Informer & Wired
  • for foodies: Food Network, Rachel Ray Every Day  & Gluten-Free Living
  • for DIYers:: Do It Yourself, Popular Woodworking, Fine Gardening & Threads
  • for Fashionistas: Cosmo, Elle & Esquire

Plus: National Geographic, USA Today, ESPN: The Magazine, the New Yorker, National Enquirer & many, many more!

Get started now. It's fast, easy and free.
