OverDrive Nook Periodicals Discontinued, Replaced by Flipster eMagazine Service

FINAL_logoWe regret to announce that OverDrive’s current collection of Nook Periodicals—including digital magazines and newspapers—will be discontinued in early December. Most titles will become unavailable on December 3rd, although a reduced offering may continue for a few months until the subscriptions expire.

CLEVNET as a whole will not be replacing this aspect of OverDrive’s collection. However, Cleveland Public Library has implemented Flipster a next-generation digital magazine solution from EBSCO that makes it easy for CPL cardholders to read popular magazines. Flipster also offers apps for Apple iOS and Android mobile devices. Start using Flipster today!

Although we were able to subscribe to many of the titles we had on the Nook platform, not all are available from Flipster. Most notably missing will be the daily newspapers. On the positive side, you will now have access to such titles as Time, Sports Illustrated, Essence, People and more, which we know you will enjoy.

Please note, OverDrive’s collection of eBooks, audiobooks and movies that you have come to enjoy is still available. You will also notice that OverDrive has recently undergone an upgrade and redesign, improving user experience and the ability to access content more easily and at faster speeds.
