About the magazines

The Curriculum Department has a number of children's magazines available to check out.  These magazines are published for children, but are a good resource for lesson plans, as well.  In addition to this, they are also beneficial for people who are learning the English language.

Below, you will find a list of all of the children's magazines that the department subscribes to.  These physical copies can be found near the Curriculum Meeting Room. 

Included for each title is a link to the physical holdings at the library, links to Electronic Resources information (if applicable) for each title, a link for the magazine's website (if applicable), as well as broad subject areas and recommended audiences for each title.
