For full instructions on how to access Pressreader via a web browser or via the app, download the Pressreader guide.
If you are an existing Pressreader user with a personalised Pressreader account, the guide will also give instructions on how to link your library membership number with your personalised account.
Please note - users get 30 days of access to Pressreader and once this access has expired you will need to sign out and sign back into the app or website using your library card number to reactivate for a further 30 days access.
