As a library member, you have free access to digital editions of over 2,400 magazines which are available at the same time (if not quicker!) than the print version at your newsagent! Libby emagazines are full cover-to-cover enhanced digital editions of popular Australian and international magazines. Australian Woman’s Weekly, New Idea, National Geographic, Time Magazine and many, many more! You’re sure to find your favourite!

Libby allows you to read emagazines for free, and never return them! You can read on computers, laptops, smart devices, and the Kindle Fire. Libby's technology digitally recreates a magazine page-for-page and includes features such as:
  • full colour pictures
  • intuitive navigation
  • keyword article search;
  • and interactive elements such as audio and video.
And best of all, they’re easy to use!
