Local journalism makes our community better.
Why become a member?
It's simple! Your support allows us to hire more local reporters and produce higher quality content.

What's included in the Membership?
Reading Magazine membership offers exclusive bonus content, giveaways, and perks that are ONLY available to members. Membership is not required to gain access to our content, just the opposite, a reward for supporting local journalism.
Can anyone become a member?
Yes, we welcome anyone to become a member. Please note, many of the benefits can only be redeemed in Berks County, Pennsylvania. No substitutes or replacements will be provided to those who cannot use the full member benefits.
Why buy a membership if your content is free?
Our ragtag team of reporters and photographers love what we do, and want to share it with the world! Kinda like Patreon, our membership is setup to reward people who support local journalism, not restrict those who can't afford it.
Shared membership benefits
Owned by the same parent organization, Hugg Media Group, Berks Weekly and Reading Magazine both share membership benefits, including Keynote speaking events, Giveaways, and Photography sessions. No need to buy two separate memberships. Buying one from either website provides access to member benefits of both websites.
