Check out the New Magazine and Newspaper iPad at the Main Desk at the Brooks Memorial Library. Many magazines and newspapers have a digital edition available online and some titles are beginning to only be available digitally, such as Newsweek.
In an effort to keep afloat on the changing tides of periodicals, Brooks Memorial Library is offering borrowers access to digital editions of a handful of titles through a library iPad. Not only will this allow more access to popular titles in the library, such as the New York Review of Books, but it will also allow patrons to get to know iPad technology and digital media.
The iPad is available for borrowers to check out at the front desk for 1 hour of use in the building. Borrowers need their library card or an ID to check out the iPad.
The iPad is loaded in the “Newsstand” app with the following titles:
Newspapers: Wall Street Journal, New York Times
Magazines: Consumer Reports, Economist, Newsweek, New Yorker, Time, People, National Geographic
In addition, there are four publications that can be accessed through their websites on Safari:
Burlington Free Press, Rutland Herald, Times Argus, New York Review of Books
