Library: Read digital versions of your favorite magazines with Flipster

The next time you go to the Bossier Parish Libraries website, you will see a new service called Flipster where you can read digital versions of your favorite magazines for free.  We have 46 of the most popular titles to choose from.  Just go to www.bossierlibrary.org, key in your library card number and look under the menu heading Digital Media/eContent, click and read. 

There is no need for a mobile app on your cell phone if you have an Internet, 3G or 4G connection.  Mobile apps can be downloaded through iTunes or Google Play Store if you have an iPad, iPad Mini, Android Tablet, or Kindle Fire. 

VickieHardin copySome electronic devices do not have the ability to perform all of the available options.  Searching through current and back issues to find a particular article or topic is easy using the keyword or category search.  However this feature is not available on the mobile app at this time.  Printing is allowed and can be done from a computer, but not a mobile device or iPad application.  Magazine publishers have control of the print options, so please be aware there are some exceptions to printing. 

BPL is very excited to offer this new service and hope it will be one of your favorite online library activities. 

Our library!  Gateway to the Past, Bridge to the Future.
