I like reading news from other countries. There tends to be a shift in perspective that can help clarify issues and controversies. Whether you are from another place, a student doing a report on another country, or just someone who is fascinated by the world, then PressReader is the database for you. Here are just five reasons to love it.
PressReader is Comprehensive
PressReader (formerly Press Display) includes more than 5000 newspapers and magazines from more than 100 countries in more than 60 languages.
When you open PressReader you’ll see the Home Feed, a collection of articles selected for your geographic location. As you sweep right on the Home Feed, more articles will appear so you can do this forever.
PressReader is Flexible
It offers translations of articles in 16 different languages and text reading is also available. Articles can be printed, emailed, and shared to social media sites.
Entering the publication menu, you are able to limit by county, language, category, or publication type.
The material can be presented just as it appears on the newsstand, pictures and ads included.
PressReader is Timely
Most publications appear in PressReader at the same time they appear on the newsstand. Most are also archived back three months in case you miss an issue.
PressReader is Free
Pressreader can be accessed on any library computer and from your home computer with a Seattle Public Library card and pin number at no cost!
PressReader is Mobile
PressReader also has a mobile app that you can use for free when connected to the Seattle Public Library’s Wi-Fi. Publications downloaded from SPL’s Wi-Fi can then be accessed from anywhere. The app is available on IOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry.
