The Stanislaus County Library has announced it is expanding its electronic resources. A growing selection of eBooks now includes children’s eBooks. The library continues to provide access to databases with information on a wide range of topics, including car repair, biographies, pro and con arguments on current issues and more.

The library now offers online access to local content from five local newspapers through a subscription to NewsBank. Full-text articles from The Ceres Courier, The Modesto Bee, Oakdale Leader, Riverbank News and Turlock Journal are available.

Another new library offering is eMagazines. Library customers can access 51 digital magazines 24-hours a day, seven days a week, through the library’s subscription to Zinio. The popular magazines are free to library customers, who have the option of downloading the magazine to a mobile device or tablet, or streaming it online to a computer. Each digital magazine includes the same complete copy that one would find in the print issue. Some magazines also include interactive features such as video, audio, and live links. There is no limit to the number of digital magazines that can be checked out, and customers may keep them for as long as they like.

For information, visit or call 209-558-2813.
