What's included in the Membership?
Reading Magazine membership offers exclusive bonus content, local coupons, 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.
What is the Do It Local app?
“do it LOCAL” is a community-focused app that makes getting discounts at your favorite local restaurants and businesses easier than ever. Easily Shop Local, Eat Local, and Play Local with money saving deals at your fingertips. New deals throughout the year. Learn more at: https://berks.doitlocalfundraising.com
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, coupons, and Photography sessions. No need to buy two separate memberships. Buying one from either website provides access to member benefits of both websites.
