Check out the library's databases, which offer you free access to popular magazines and newspapers. You can use them from your home computer, 24 hours a day-7 days a week. A few magazines that might pique your interest include:

  • Better Homes and Gardens*
  • Good Housekeeping
  • Town and Country
  • Organic Gardening
  • Yard and Garden
  • Today's Gardening Center

To find these magazines, go to your local library's home page, click on HomeAccess, type in the 14 digit barcode from your library card, select Proquest & search by Publication.)

*Better Homes and Gardens is available through the EBSCOhost database.

You'll need a library card in order to use the databases or borrow library materials. You can get one for free by stopping in your local library.
