We offer two different platforms for borrowing e-magazines, OverDrive and Flipster. e-Magazines are easy to read in each platform's website or app. In the website or app you can just click on a magazine cover to get started!

Need help? Ask a Library staff member at any of our locations or call, text or email Ask-a-Librarian. The Tinker Station helpline at (317) 275-4500 is also available. It is staffed by device experts who can answer questions about how to read, watch, and listen on a PC, tablet or phone.
