eMagazines: What are They and How Do I Read Them?

eMagazines are electronic or digitized versions of print magazines. They can be easily read on devices such as your smartphone, iPhone, Kindle Fire, tablet, iPad, or computer.

Thousands of eMagazines are available for free with your Salina Library card. If you don’t have a library card, you can apply for one here.

When you read an eMagazine on your device, you are in control of the text size and screen brightness, making it easy to adjust for your preferences and visual needs.
