Newspapers & Magazines

Newspapers

A wide variety of newspapers and magazines are taken in Hampshire's libraries. Depending on the size of the library, magazine titles will vary from just a handful through to over 100 current titles at the very largest libraries. All libraries provide a local newspaper.
Most libraries keep copies of newspapers and magazines.

Magazines

Large libraries will normally keep files of general interest magazines for a time scale varying between several months to several years . Those magazines which are of local interest are kept permanently in Local Studies collections. There are a number of Special Collections in the county and the holding library will keep permanent files of the selected periodicals on these topics

Some libraries now offer popular magazines for loan.
