The New Yorker website

For West Hartford residents, The New Yorker magazine is now available online via the library's RB Digital subscription, suitable for any internet-connected device or computer.  Free hard copies of each New Yorker are distributed at the end of each meeting. Additional copies of the magazine may also be available at the Information Desk at the Noah Webster Library; please ask a librarian.

Online and print copies of The New Yorker have been provided with funding from the library's Thomas Kilfoil Memorial Bequest since May 2, 2014, when the discussion group began.
