PressReader delivers an endless stream of top news stories to read, discuss and share. Access full issues of thousands of top newspapers and magazines from around the world and experience them online just as they appear in print!

Please note: 
The Globe and Mail is no longer offering at-home access to library customers through PressReader. You can still read and download the paper using PressReader, but will have to be at one of our library locations to do so.

Using a desktop computer or RPL mobile app:

  • Access through GO button
  • Enter your Library card number and PIN
  • Browse, read, and share from thousands of newspapers from all over the world!
  • Create a user account for a more personalized experience and to save your preferences. 
  • Select “Sign In” and access the link “New user? Sign up now”. Follow the prompts, providing an email address and password, as well as your first and last name. 

Using the PressReader app: 

•    Follow the steps above to create an account (user accounts must be created through the website).
•    Download the app 
•    Sign In to the PressReader app with the email and password used to create an account. 

What if I don’t want to create a user account?

The PressReader app can be used without signing in; however, you will need to visit a HotSpot every 48 hours in order to refresh your complete access to all content. See HotSpot details below.
Follow these steps to ensure continued access to all content via the PressReader app without needing to visit a HotSpot:

  1. Sign in to the app with your user account (created through the website)
  2. Select Accounts option from menu
  3. Select your name and then scroll down and select the Library icon
  4. Follow “Select Library or Group” 
  5. Search “Saskatchewan” and select “Saskatchewan Public Libraries” from the list
  6. Enter your Library barcode and PIN when prompted. You may see a message: “this library account is already in use.” Confirm okay. 
  7. You may be asked to repeat this step and re-authenticate after 30 days, but you will not require a HotSpot to do so.
