Borrow an Alberta eMagazine from the public library

Alberta’s magazine publishing industry joined forces with the Book Publishers Association of Alberta to expand the Read Alberta eBooks project, launched in 2017, to include digital editions of many of the province’s world-class magazines in Alberta libraries.

The Read Alberta Collection has grown to include more than 50 eMagazines – all created in the province. Library patrons have online access to publications covering topics including lifestyle, sports and leisure, crafting, current affairs, cities and regions, literary arts, food and drink, and more.

The project is made possible through an investment from the Public Library Services Branch of Alberta Municipal Affairs.
