Access e-newspaper from around the world with PressReader

PressReader is NVDPL's main resource for accessing e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world in dozens of languages.

To use PressReader, click on Sign In at the top right corner of the screen, then select the yellow Library and Group option. Search for North Vancouver District Public Library, enter your library card and PIN, then click Sign In. You can tell you're signed in properly if you see a green coffee cup icon at the top left of the screen and your name at the top right corner.

Users have to sign in again once every three (3) days to access NVDPL's hot spot. (This is PressReader's rule.)

Note: As of July 24, PressReader has released the following statement regarding access to The Globe & Mail newspaper:

"The Globe & Mail has changed its access policy on the PressReader app. Effectively immediately library patrons may only access The Globe & Mail in the PressReader app while onsite at their library. This means that PressReader radiant and remote access capabilities for this title are no longer be available."
 

Update July 26: 

it appears users are experiencing glitches with accessing The Globe & Mail via PressReader at the library. Our vendor is working to find more information, and we’ll update as soon as more information is available. Thank you for your patience!

 

Please visit any NVDPL location to access The Globe & Mail through PressReader. Please contact our e-support team if you require further assistance. Thank you!
