E-magazines

APRIL 1 UPDATE: The Johnson County/Olathe Public library systems have changed their e-magazine provider. The new e-magazine provider is Libby. We are going to link you to the public library support pages until we are able to update our own tutorials.

The Johnson County/Olathe Public Library system subscribes to Libby– an incredible service with access to thousands of magazines you can read online or with the Libby app on your iOS or Android device.

Using Libby is easy– but creating your personal account requires a public library card number. If you have a traditional library card that number will work. If you don’t have a card yet, you can apply online for an e-card which gives you access to all of the library’s electronic resources.

Various guides are provided below to help you get started. Feel free to contact me, smcnerneyoe@olatheschools.org or the public library for additional support.
