The Great Magazine Giveaway is Back at the Library, with a Twist


Beginning Monday, January 11th, the McPherson Public Library will hold its annual Great Magazine Giveaway.  However this year, the library has taken the popular event online, allowing patrons to browse the available titles from their home computer, and make their requests by email, free of charge.  A list of available titles and the email link can be found at  From here, patrons can make their selection of a maximum of eight titles, and email their choices to the library. Once a reply is received that the request was successful, patrons have five days to pick up their magazines. The list will be updated regularly to reflect available titles.

This year’s giveaway is a joint event with McPherson College, and most titles are the 2018 issues of popular children, teen, parenting, and adult magazines, although earlier and later editions of some titles are also available.

The giveaway will continue throughout the week while supplies last.

“Giving away the magazines allows us a way to get them into hands of people who are interested in re-reading or re-purposing them. It’s a win for all of us.” stated Jennie Hall, Head of Adult Services.

For additional information call the library at 245-2570 or email them at
