What is Flipster?

Flipster is a next-generation service that allows you to read magazines through your library – anytime, anywhere!

Flipster offers an easy, browse-able reading experience. Think of it as an online newsstand – one of the benefits of your library card. Single magazine issues are expensive! Subscriptions pile up and need recycling. Not with Flipster!

It’s also easy to print a favorite recipe, picture, or article.

Click on the Flipster logo above to see the most recent issues. The table of contents contains links for quick access to articles of interest and hotlinks within magazines are hyperlinked, opening in separate tabs when clicked. In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.

You may need to type in your library card number to get access. 

There is also a Flipster app for your phone or tablet.  Go to your favorite app store for your phone or tablet.  Look for “Flipster” and download the app.  Select “Bloomsburg Public Library” and click the words “Library Card.” Enter your 14-digit number and start reading! 

If you get the message that you have been logged out, don’t worry!  Ignore the request for a password and click the words “Library Card” underneath.  Then enter your full library card number as before.
