As of 2014, Taste magazine will be available for loan from many of our branches. This magazine was formerly known as Australian Good Taste. Prior to the arrival of the hard copies of the magazines, the digital version of Taste is currently available through Zinio.

Run out of time to finish that ebook you downloaded? Up until now, when a loan period expires, borrowers have been obliged to return the item then locate it and borrow it again. No more!
