New York Times Digital

Your library card gives you 24-hour complimentary, unlimited access to the digital edition of The New York Times. To get started follow these simple steps:

Access on library computers or WiFi network

Go to and create an account with your personal email address, or log in if you have already created an account.

Offsite/remote access

  1. Get a code here

    You’ll be taken to a screen with the heading “A special offer from The New York Times” with a code already filled into the form – click the “Redeem” button and you’ll be taken to a screen to create a account.*

  2. Login or Create an Account

    In order to use your code, you’ll need to associate it with a account. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to create one. Sign up with your email or through your existing Facebook or Twitter accounts. You might already have a account, in which case you should click the “Log in here” link instead. If you’ve forgotten your password you can follow the prompts to have it sent to you again.**

  3. Use your pass

    Once you’ve either logged in with a current account or created an account, you’ll be taken to a SUCCESS page which tells you your pass is active.

    Your pass will work on any computer where you log in to your account, so you can use it on your iPad, work computer, laptop, wherever.

If you have the New York Times app, or want to download it, you’ll also have unlimited 24-hour access there once you’ve logged into the app with your account. You’ll also get a confirmation email sent to whichever email account you used to sign up with

* After the first 24 hours have passed, you will need to redeem another code for another 24 hours of remote access (i.e. Repeat Step 1). This is the licensing model that New York Times has negotiated with public libraries.
