Flipster is a digital magazine service. Merrill Memorial Library now subscribes to 16 digital magazines in addition to our regular print magazines. Some of the digital titles we will carry are familiar, like the New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, Real Simple, and Vogue; other titles are new but cover subject matter similar to what you’ll find in our print collection, like Dwell, Food Network Magazine, Mother Jones, Newsweek, and Prevention.
You can read these magazines on your computer or smartphone, but the experience of reading on an iPad, Kindle Fire, or Android tablet is best. Download the Flipster app to use it on a tablet.
