Some of you may be familiar with our subscription to RBdigital, which provides access to a great collection of magazines. The only problem is that we currently have no access to children's magazines, that will change on July 1, and until then, you can use Flipster to view browsable magazines on a huge variety of topics, for people of all ages!
Access Flipster here, and when prompted enter the East Lansing Public Library's credentials to get started:
