What is Flipster?

Flipster is your library's choice for providing you with access to digital magazines that you can read on any of your electronic devices.

In order to access Flipster you must be a currently enrolled student at CGCC, staff, or faculty, and will be prompted to sign in with a username and password from off-campus.
