Libraries put newspapers and magazines online

* The new Press Reader facility on a mobile phone.

Library members in Denbighshire can now access over 7,000 newspapers and magazines online from home.

Denbighshire Libraries have added ‘Press Reader’ to their collection of digital resources, giving free access to newspapers and magazines, from 120 countries around the world, 24/7. 

The publications are available in full text, on the day of publication and look just like the printed edition. 

They can be viewed online through a web browser, or via the Press Reader app on a smart phone or tablet.

Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said:  “During the lockdown, while library buildings have been closed, many more people have been using our free digital library offer from home.

“We have introduced new offers such as Ancestry Library, uLibrary, and now we’re able to offer Press Reader to our members. These are in addition to all the eBooks and eAudiobooks already offered via Borrowbox, and the digital magazines and comics that are available through RB Digital.”

* To access this exciting new service visit the library web pages at and click on ‘Library Catalogue’. If you are not already a library member, join online.
