How can I access the New York Times Online?

The Library provides free online access to the New York Times on public computers and 72-hour off-site access through our website by code activation.

Getting Started

If you are inside a Library Building:

Access on library computers and library Wi-fi

    1. Navigate to
    2. You will see a pop-up like the one below.  Click Register.  If you already have an account, click on Log in under the "Create Account" button.
    3. Browse or search for articles.

Don't hit a wall pop-up


Offsite/remote access -

Please note that the remote access link does not work inside the library's buildings.  You will need to be offsite to check out a pass.  Use the instructions above for using The New York Times inside the library.

    1. Open a web browser.
    2. Click on the remote access link
    3. Click “Redeem” to get 72 hours of continuous access.*
    4. Register with your personal email address, or click on “log in here” if you have already created an account.**
    5. You will have to log in twice.  

Once you have created your account (or have logged in), you will receive an email confirmation of your 72-hour, unlimited access to New York Times Digital (pictured below).

* After the first 72 hours have passed, you will need to redeem another code for another 72 hours of remote access (i.e., Repeat Step 2). This is the licensing model that New York Times has negotiated with public libraries.

** Please be advised that registering an email address with New York Times Digital will opt you in to receive email marketing communications from the New York Times. To opt-out of receiving mailings, follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of these messages.
