Digital Magazines Have Arrived!

The New Hampshire Downloadable Books Consortium is happy to announce that patrons can borrow digital magazines -- officially Nook Periodicals - on their tablets and smartphones. Read through the embedded instructions below for information about compatible devices and what you need to know. Windows 8 users, scroll to the bottom of the article.

Download the PDF of the Handout.


Windows 8 Users

1) Download the Nook app first before doing anything else. 

      a) The easiest way to the Windows store for the Nook app is to swipe left from the right side of the screen to bring up charms IF you're using a touchscreen.

      b) If you're using a mouse, it's a little trickier, but can be
done: bring the mouse to RIGHT ABOVE the time/date section of the task bar on the bottom of the screen, and the charms will appear.

      c) Once the charms appear, select the search option, and type in "Store".  The Windows app store will come up, click, and simply search for "Nook". Download to proceed.

2) After downloading the Nook app and opening the app, it gives the option to sign in with either your Microsoft Account, or a Nook Account. Sign in with a Nook account -- not the Microsoft account. (You might be required to create a new Nook account at bn.com and not through the app itself.)

A big thank-you to Lisa at the Merrimack Public Library for the Windows 8 instructions!
