Access to eMagazines has become easier with Bundaberg Regional Libraries making the switch to cloudLibrary NewsStand.
There are over 7000 magazine titles available through the platform, in approximately 50 languages and more than 40 categories, with some overseas newspapers also available.
The new system is easy to use in the form of an app which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store.
The benefits of the new app include:
- The ability to curate a shelf of your favourites
- Bookmarking pages to easily come back to them
- Issues can be downloaded and then read offline (via app)
- You can keep the magazines as long as you like – no pressure to read and return them
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the extent of digital resources available for the community was a credit to the fantastic work of the libraries team.
“The Bundaberg Regional Libraries team have continued to work hard to provide the region’s community with access to a number of great digital resources, including the new cloudLibrary NewsStand app,” Cr Learmonth said.
“The app allows you to access thousands of titles, with the benefits of not having to borrow and return a physical copy of the magazine.
“eMagazines are just one part of our suite of digital services with eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMusic also available to access through the website.”
The range of magazines available covers a number of categories including Art, Business, Celebrity, Children, Comics, Entertainment, Home, Investment, Men’s Interest, Music, News, Newspapers, Parenting and Politics.
Titles currently include Who, New Idea, Woman’s Day, The Australian, Women’s Weekly, Better Homes and Gardens, Motor Magazine, 4X4 Australia, Outdoor Design & Living, InStyle Australia, Australian Knitting, Retrobike and Grand Designs Australia.
Accessing cloudLibrary NewsStand is as simple as:
