How much would it cost you to subscribe to a few hundred magazines and newspapers? Probably a good few bucks. Luckily for you, there’s no need to let go of your hard earned $.
JPL subscribes to and makes available 175 magazines, 22 of which are geared for children and live in the children’s room. Our more popular magazines can be checked out for two weeks at a time. Other magazines that are more professional/technical in nature need to stay in the building so others can have access to them.
Remember, you can also find digital editions of these and some others that we don’t have in the library by using your free RB Digital account.
