People, Real Simple, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and Sports Illustrated—these are just a few of the popular magazines being offered free of charge through the Louisville Free Public Library’s new online serviceFlipster. Flipster is a digital magazine service where library card holders can access some of today’s most popular magazines through the Library’s website. Each magazine is recreated page-for-page and a simple sign-in process—just your library card number and pin—gets you reading fast. Patrons using the Flipster app can even store downloaded magazines on their personal devices or phones for offline access, and Flipster is compatible with PC and Mac computers, tablets, color eReaders, and other Internet-enabled devices.
The new Flipster service is an addition to the Library’s popular eMagazine offerings. Patrons will continue to have access to the more than 150 magazine titles through Zinio for Libraries. Flipster and Zinio are free and available 24 hours a day through the Library’s website. To access, visit www.LFPL.org/eMagazines, or click on the “eMagazines” button on the home page.
