Users have access through Flipster for magazines such Fortune, Time, People, Scientific American, Sports Illustrated, Us Weekly and more so patrons have the option of accessing the content at the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® phones and tables, and Kindle Fire tablets for offline reading anytime, anywhere.

Flipster offers an easy, browse-able reading experience. Users can browse magazines by category as well as perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent issues, as well as a carousel of all issues allowing for quick access to magazines.

In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.

Any current NExpress patron can use the service by going to NExpress in their browser (on their computer or mobile device) and logging into the catalog with their library user name and PIN. From there, you will find “Access Flipster” under the Digital Resources links on the left side of the screen. That one click will get you directly to the magazines available through NExpress.

Librarian in the Spotlight

Librarian in the Spotlight

Cathy Newland, Library Director, came to work for the Silver Lake Public Library in December 2010. She lives with husband JerryCathy and doggie pal Lucy. They all love small-town living and the sense of community they share with folks in Silver Lake.

“She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain.” (Louisa May Alcott) This has been said of Cathy too. She does love to read and when asked about her favorite book, she usually says, “The one I am reading right now.”

Reading and books is not the only reason Cathy likes working in the Library. The Library is so much more and she is so pleased to be a part of the fine services offered.

Fall is her favorite time of the year. “And Thanksgiving – I am so thankful for the wonderful group of people I work with. I hope you have enjoyed seeing them in the Spotlight.”
