Pressreader is an online newspaper kiosk. It provides access to electronic copies of thousands of newspapers from 100 countries in 60 languages. Up to 90 days of back issues are available.  Local news plus international, national, and provincial newspapers are available for you to read from cover to cover, sometimes even before the publications hit the newsstands. The publications are full-colour, full-format, and can be read at home or on the go!

* Please note: Due to a licensing change by the publisher, The Medicine Hat News, The Lethbridge Herald, The Calgary Herald, and The Globe and Mail are now accessible only when connecting to PressReader from inside the library.
