Answer

Our magazine subscriptions are in our catalog, but we don't have a single list of the periodicals we receive in hard-copy.  Individual branches may have a printed list of their own collections, which you could ask a librarian to see.

Most branches, with the exception of Rockville Memorial, circulate almost all of their magazines.  In general, however, the most recent issue does not circulate.

You can also search using the new catalog. Type in a word from the title, change the dropdown next to the search box from "All Fields" to "Title" and click on the Search button. Once you have the results you can limit them by clicking on "More" under "Material Type," check mark the Magazine format you are looking for, and click on "Include."

Is there any particular magazine title or subject for which you are looking?  Our librarians would be happy to assist.

    Live Chat

    Using this service you may be chatting with MCPL librarians or librarians at other libraries. All librarians will assist you and, if needed, refer your question, to MCPL librarians.

    For more than a decade, Montgomery County Public Libraries has offered a live, digital chat reference service. Developed by MCPL staff in 2002, with just a chat box on the main webpage, we quickly expanded to include chat reference options that could be accessed across the website and even in the catalog. This year the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative, of which MCPL is a member, began providing the same type of chat reference service to all its participating members. We are pleased to announce that, by joining forces with the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative - a network of librarians worldwide - MCPL will continue to support our community with the same quality chat reference service that we have offered for the last 11 years, but it will now be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We look forward to continuing our reference chats!
