Overdrive Magazines are Here!

Overdrive magazines
The first wave of 50 magazines is available in the CW MARS OverDrive catalog. Take a look at the "Magazine Room" for a list of the available titles: https://cwmars.overdrive.com/collection/184768

Patrons can access them either through the Libby app or through the OverDrive app. They can be read online or downloaded for offline reading.

Patrons can read a sample from any magazine before borrowing. To borrow, they have to be signed in normally.

The magazines are all purchased under a "simultaneous use" agreement. This means every magazine is always available. There's no waiting. If someone wants to read a magazine, they can.
