Did you know that the magazines at the new Darien Library have been rearranged? Instead of the traditional A to Z lineup, the magazines are now grouped by subject, making it much easier to browse your favorites. The subject headings are the same ones we use for the non-fiction book collection: Arts & Literature, Body & Soul, Home, Life & Times, Nature, Places, Play and Work. Are you interested in sailing? Just look in the "Play" area and you will find Cruising World, Practical Sailor, Sail, Sailing and Yachting, all in the same place. For the music aficionado, "Arts & Literature" is the place to be. There you will find Acoustic Guitar, Audiofile, Downbeat and Rolling Stone, just to name a few. Can you guess what the largest section might be? If you guessed "Home", well done! This group includes nearly sixty magazines devoted to cooking, gardening, fashion, crafts, and home design. You get the gist, now come in and see for yourself.
The next time you come to the library, come see us on the second level and spend some time with the magazines. Did I mention that back issues can be checked out? Take as many as you like and enjoy them at your leisure.
If you have a favorite and we don't subscribe, just let us know. We are your library, and we want to have the magazines you want to read!
