The library has over 90 magazine subscriptions. The Friends of the Drake Public Library pay for the annual renewal notice. Magazines are not cheap! News stand magazines cost between $3.50-$14.99 per issue.
The subscriptions cover many topics of interest such as finance, diet, exercise, fashion, and the automobile world. Magazines may be checked out for two weeks at a time, new issues can be checked out for three days at a time. We don’t limit the amount of magazines that one patron can check out at a time.
Catch up on celebrity gossip in US Weekly and People magazine, research a big ticket item in the Consumer Reports magazines and annual buying guide. Magazines come out weekly and monthly. Save money and use the library’s publications.
The children’s section has several issues available as well. Boy’s Life, Girl’s Life and American Girl Doll Magazine are just a few on file. Magazines are a way to get reluctant readers to read more. Magazine articles are short, have lots of pictures, and interesting content.
