In the Howard & Espa Michaud Reading Room you'll find a great selection of magazines and newspapers. All of our magazines can be checked out for 7 days (even the current issue). Just think of the money you'll save by reading library magazines. If you went to the store and purchased three magazines it might cost you anywhere between $9-$15. So why limit yourself to just three magazines when you can read all the magazines in the library for free. The money you'll save over an entire year will surprise you.

A partial list of magazine titles:
Cooking Light
Harper's Magazine
O The Oprah Magazine
National Geographic
Sports Illustrated
Harvard Business Review
Popular Mechanics
Consumer Reports
Good Housekeeping
Christianity Today

The December '07 issue of O has a story about the Camel Library, a camel bookmobile where traveling librarians deliver books to people in remote areas of Kenya via camel. Masha Hamilton's novel, the Camel Bookmobile, is a fictional account based on the actual camel bookmobile.

You can read the book (we have it at the library) and visit the website to learn more or make a donation.
