It's not all about homework, right? Sometimes you need to let your body and brain relax.

We now offer popular magazines via Flipster, a digital newsstand that makes it easy for you to read your favorite magazines on your computer or mobile device.

Contents of these magazines are fully searchable and individual pages can be saved or printed through a desktop browser. See notes at left for system requirements and how to download apps for mobile devices. 

To view magazines from your browser, you'll be asked to log in to the MJC databases. Have your W# (without W and with zeros) and birthday in six-digit format (September 1, 2000 would be 090100) ready to use for log-in credentials.
