The good news is..digital magazines are still available

If you are one who read magazines from New Hampshire Downloadable on your Nook app please be aware that Overdrive is changing the format. Therefore we will be losing two dozen magazines this month and all most all of the rest in mid-March.

BUT...these magazines are available to read on your device by going to our online newstand and reading them from Ebsco, a database we subscribe to. 

Soon we will be notified of when the new format will be available on the New Hampshire Downloadable website .

We apologize for the inconvenience!
