PressReader is free to use with your library card number or when you visit Marlborough District Libraries (Blenheim and Picton).

Access PressReader here

Message to PressDisplay users: If you previously used ‘PressDisplay’ the new PressReader website will look a little different. You can no longer access Pressdisplay but your remote access will continue when you visit the PressReader website.

When you first open PressReader a Hotspot Pop-up message will appear. This will include a message about complementary access. Simply click on the green ‘View Publications’ button to continue and you will have unlimited access.

Remote access to PressReader

Marlborough District Libraries members can access PressReader ‘remotely’ when away from the library. Enter your library card number and PIN to log in to your library account.

Library visitors can access PressReader in the library, either on our computers or through a browser on your own device.

Create a free PressReader account on any mobile device, or download the PressReader app to access seven days of complementary remote access when you leave the library.

Once your seven days of access is over you will need to visit our libraries and access PressReader via your browser once again.

Create a PressReader account

Anyone can create a free personalised PressReader account and download the PressReader app.

Sign up using your email or social media and sign in to set your reading preferences.

You can also use your account at home or, on your device when visiting the library, to download magazines and newspapers to read later when you’re offline.
