Read Alberta eMagazines

Borrow an Alberta eMagazine online from your public library.


Alberta’s magazine publishing industry has joined forces with the province’s book publishers to expand the Read Alberta eBooks project, launched in 2017, to include digital editions of dozens of the province’s world-class magazines.

The Read Alberta Collection will now add 42 diverse eMagazine titles from across the province to the existing digital collection of more than 2,000 Alberta-published eBooks. The project has grown through a partnership between the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association (AMPA) and the Public Library Services Branch (PLSB) of Alberta Municipal Affairs.

Library patrons will be able to borrow eMagazines covering a diverse range of topics including lifestyle, sports and leisure, crafting, current affairs, cities and regions, literary arts, food and drink, and special interest titles.
