Magging from the library

September 3rd, 2007


There may be one mag subscription that’s really special to you. But why not limit the number of magazines you have delivered to your mailbox? Or, instead of buying Family Circle at the grocery store for that great recipe, check it out at the library.

My library has several mags to choose from: People, Family Handyman, Seventeen, Dog Fancy, Cosmo, Southern Living, American Girl, and many more. Some are serious and others are just for fun. Either way, you are sharing resources and helping to decrease the number of mags printed. After all, how many times do you really go back and read old issues of magazines?

    I’ve used the library for magazines for a while. But I must admit, usually only to look at the back issues for whatever reason. I enjoy sitting in my easy chair at home reading my magazines. But, I don’t subscribe unless that’s the only way to receive the magazine. And instead of trashing my magazines when I’m through I donate them. Usually to my daughter-in-law so she can place them in the examining room for the patients to read while they wait on her or the doctor. But they could be donated to a nursing home, or hospital.

    Nita, thanks for stopping by. My library allows you to check out most magazines so you can read them at home. But not all libraries are the same, I know.

    You make an excellent point about donating magazines. I usually just end up recycling them.

    I LOVE using the library for flipping through magazines. Usually I’d do that to get an idea of what each magazine publishes, etc. but it’s also cool to check out magazines for reading pleasure and you don’t have to pay. I only subscribe to magazines I absolute love. I usually keep my magazines for a long time, then purge them by recycling them or giving them away on freecycle or craigslist when I’m done with them.
