New York Times Online

All library patrons can now read the New York Times and NYT Cooking from a computer or mobile device simply by having a library card.

There are two ways to access the New York Times Online:

  1. If you are at the LIBRARY using one of our public computers or connected to our Wi-Fi:
    • Click here to visit The New York Times
    • Create an account with your personal email address, or “Log In” if you already have an account
  2. If you are connecting from HOME, use the following links to redeem a code for 24-hour offsite access:
    • New York Times NEWS
    • New York Times COOKING
    • Next, create an account with your personal email address, or “Log In” if you already have an account. Note: After 24-hours, you will need to click the links above again to generate a new code for another 24-hour access period

Note: Regardless of where you connect from, all patrons will be required to register for a New York Times account using their email and password (or sign-in using your existing NYT account if you already have one).
