The Building is Closed; the Library is open.

John Jermain will be closed at least through May 29, 2020 in compliance with “Shelter in Place” mandates. Our online resources, e-books, programs, and reference services are still available. For updated information on the library and COVID-19, visit our FAQ page or follow our blog, It’s Germane.

Periodical Room at Home

Do you miss reading the latest newspapers and magazines in the library’s sunny Periodical Room? We miss seeing you there too. Fortunately, you can access many of the same periodicals from the comfort of your own couch. All you need is your library card. Don’t have a library card? Get a temporary one here. (For Flipster, a temporary library card will not work, but we will convert it to a permanent card ASAP.)


To access the most recent full text edition of each newspaper, click on the links below. After logging in with your library card, click the date next to “Latest available issue.” You can also browse specific dates and search for articles.


Browse the list of over 150 magazines available digitally through Flipster. Titles include Time, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Better Homes & Garden, Forbes, Food & Wine, Rolling Stone, People, Vogue, Vanity Fair, and many more. You can even read back issues.
