Korean e-collection from Paramus Public Library

In order to browse and borrow from this collection patrons must take the following steps:

1.  Go to Yes24 website.(
2.  Create an account
3.  User waits for verification email from Paramus that they have been approved
4.  Log back in to start using the magazines and books

There will be some delay between creating an account and being able to access the collection.  This is normal.  Paramus staff must first authenticate new users.

Thank you Paramus Public Library for your generosity at this time!
