Effective February 1, the online format of the newspaper “The Economist” will no longer be available digitally through Arlington Public Library’s OverDrive digital magazines. All editions, including back issues, of “The Economist” will be removed from OverDrive. The last issue available for patrons to borrow will be January 28, 2023.
The removal is a result of newly required lending model changes by “The Economist” that are not compatible with how magazines are available in OverDrive/Libby.
The print edition of “The Economist” is currently available at Aurora Hills, Central, Shirlington and Westover Libraries. Starting this spring, print subscriptions will be available at Columbia Pike, Cherrydale and Glencarlyn Libraries.
