How to borrow eMagazines and eNewspapers

We use PressReader to offer free, digital access to eMagazines and eNewspapers. The first time you use service, you will need to register. This will give you 30 days uninterrupted access. After this, you need to log in again every 30 days to continue to access a range of titles for free using your computer or smart device.

Make sure you have read the before you start section before following these instructions.

Please Note
If you’re in a library building, you don’t need to sign in to access PressReader on your mobile device because libraries are marked as HotSpots where PressReader allows everyone free access. You don’t need to connect to the public Wi-Fi to access PressReader. You do need to ensure that Enable Location Services is switched on in More: Settings.
