New Magazines Coming to the Library

The world of print magazine publishing has faced considerable pressures in recent years—primarily, the migration of print media to digital formats and the downturn in the economy. Nevertheless, publishers continue to produce print magazines and are even launching new titles to replace those that have folded. The following magazines are new to Sedona Public Library’s collection or will be available soon.           

Bottom Line Personal is a unique publication offering expert advice on issues ranging from finance, and investments, to health and well-being, home repair, and much more.  It provides advice for the everyday consumer, as well as information about diet and exercise, alternative health, and self-improvement.  The latest edition is available at the Library.

For large-print readers, we will soon carry Reader’s Digest in large print.  Now our patrons with sight impairment will be able to access the wealth of useful advice and information that has made Reader’s Digest one of the most widely read magazines in the world.      

For the golfers in our community, we will offer Golf Digest.  Page through Golf Digest and discover instructions for improving your golf swing, reviews on the latest equipment, and descriptions of notable courses, as well as the latest news on tour and pros. 

Model train enthusiasts—as well as anyone that loves the annual model railroad display at the Library—will enjoy Model Railroader.  Take a photographic tour of model train layouts, learn about their construction and operation, find out about the best products, and get pointers from the pros. 

Our magazine collection would be incomplete without selections to interest our new-age community, and to supplement our current metaphysical titles, we’ll be adding Reiki News and Spirituality & Health.  Drawing on a variety of alternative and conventional modalities new and old, Spirituality & Health reports on the people, practices, and philosophies of the new age/consciousness movement.  Topics include yoga and meditation, health and healing, relationships, green living, and much more.  In each glossy issue, Reiki News provides the inspiration and ideas you need to enhance your reiki practice.  A good resource for the reiki professional and novice, Reiki News contains a wealth of practical instruction and advice.

The best-selling U.S. men’s magazine, Men’s Health, will join the shelf soon, along with its companion publication, Women’s HealthMen’s Health offers guidance on health and nutrition, fitness and lifestyle, sexuality, and other aspects of men’s life. Women’s Health tackles questions on health and well-being, fitness and weight loss, beauty, and style, with a lively and fun approach.  Delivered in the candid, irreverent voice of a trusted girlfriend, Women’s Health is an entertaining resource for women’s lifestyle advice.    

The magazine area in the youth department will also feature some new additions, including Babybug, Iguana, and Wild Animal Baby
