Why did the library get rid of my favorite magazine?
And can’t I just donate a magazine subscription to ACPL?
the publisher is no longer providing that magazine in printed form.
However, it or an alternative may be available digitally. The Ohio Digital Library
has over 1,000 magazines, including three years of back issues of
nearly every title. You can read them on your phone, tablet, or your PC.
Hoopla also has an impressive eMagazine collection. It's
offered as a “Binge Pass,” which means you have access to the
whole collection with just 1 borrow for 7 days (!)
Here’s how our magazine donation procedure works:
Contact us first
before signing up the library for a particular magazine! We'd much
rather have a monetary donation so we can get the magazine through our
vendor and onto our yearly renewal schedule.

An interactive exhibit series located in the Richland Ave Park
aims to highlight the role the humanities have played in shaping
Athens and Southeast Ohio (and how they still impact our daily lives!)
“Women Promoting Education in Southeast Ohio” currently on display, and
look for new themes every few months. Meant to offer something for
all ages, the exhibit panels include QR codes that will take visitors
to resources like diaries and letters in online archives. More info here.
local organizations worked together to make
this project possible! They include the Athens
Department of Arts, Parks and Recreation; the Athens County Public
Libraries; humanities faculty in the Ping Institute; the Ohio University
Libraries (in particular the Mahn Center for Archives and Special
Collections and the Digital Initiatives Department); and The Central
Region Humanities Center at Ohio University.
in the Park is made possible, in part, by a grant from Ohio Humanities,
a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
