Q. How can I access the New York Times Online?

I would like to read articles from the New York Times at home and on my device.  How does it work?


The Library provides free online access to the New York Times on public computers, and 24-hour offsite access through our website by code activation.

Getting Started

Access on library computers:

  1. Go to the A-Z Resources page and click on New York Times.
  2. Click “Log In” if you have already created an account or “Sign Up” to create an account.** At the prompt for type of user, click on “Other/Non-Academic.”
  3. Browse or search for articles.

Offsite/remote access

  1. Open a web browser.
  2. Click on the remote access link
  3. Click “Redeem” to get 24 hours of continuous access.*
  4. Register with your personal email address, or click on “log in here” if you have already created an account.**

Once you have created your account (or have logged in), you will receive an email confirmation of your 24-hour, unlimited access to New York Times Digital (pictured below).

* 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 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 into receiving email marketing communications from the New York Times. To opt out of receiving mailings, follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of these messages.
