One tap to read, easier magazine subscriptions now in Libby

Thursday, September 28, 2023

This week's Libby updates you'll love:

  • One tap to read: Open a magazine and start reading with one tap.
  • Streamlined access: Instead of appearing alongside ebook and audiobook loans, magazines now appear on a new dedicated section of a user’s Shelf called the Magazine Rack. From the Magazine Rack, you can access the latest issue of your magazine subscriptions and any other issues they choose to keep. One convenient place!
    Note: To save space on your device, magazines are not automatically downloaded for offline use. Instead, your can manually choose which issues to download.
  • Improved discovery: From your Magazine Rack, navigate easily to Newsstand to view your recently opened issues and other popular magazine titles in our collection.
  • Easier subscriptions: Subscribe to magazines from your library via a new, convenient Subscribe button that appears in search results, on magazine details screens, and in the Newsstand. When a new issue is released:
    • The issue is automatically added to your Magazine Rack.
    • You'll receive a notification based on their Libby notification preferences (in-app, push, or email).
