Magazines and Newspapers

The Santa Cruz Public Library system subscribes to hundreds of magazines and newspapers on a wide variety of topics. In addition to the "in-library" collection, we also subscribe to a number of subscription databases that allow you to read full-text articles online.

Which magazines and newspapers does SCPL own?

You can browse a complete list of our periodical holdings using the links to the left. Magazines and newspapers are organized alphabetically by title. If you would like to see if we carry a particular magazine or newspaper, use the search box on the top right.

What about magazine downloads?

We also offer electronic access to a variety of magazines through Zinio, a service which allows you to read and search magazines online. To use Zinio, you'll need to create an account with RBdigital using your email address and library card number, and then create an additional Zinio account to access the collection.
