How to use PressReader for online newspapers

You can access PressReader at or by downloading the PressReader app for apple or android devices.

You will need to log in with your library number, here’s how

  • Press ‘sign in’
  • Select the ‘Library and groups’ option
  • A list of libraries will then open from which you can choose Tipperary. Simply start typing your county or local authority areas and you should find it easily. Look out for the Libraries Ireland logo.
  • You will then be asked to enter your library card number.

That’s it – you’re now logged in and ready to read!

Your login grants you 30 days access initially. When this 30 days has expired a new period can be started simply by logging out and back in using the same method.

*Important Update*

In June 2020 PressReader switched its subscriptions to a system called “Radiant Access”. In order to avail of all the Independent News & Media and Irish Examiner titles offered by PressReader, which include The Irish Independent and Sunday Independent, patrons must log on to the Library Service WiFi by visiting a library branch. This will then entitle you to remote access to INM and Irish Examiner titles for 5 days. At the end of those 5 days their access to INM and Irish Examiner titles ONLY will cease, and in order for it to be renewed patrons must again log on to Library WiFi in a branch. In order for you to maintain access to all INM & Irish Examiner titles this library branch WiFi log-on process must be repeated every 5 days.
Please note that this “Radiant Access” condition applies to INM & Irish Examiner titles ONLY: access to all other publications will be maintained without the requirement to log on to Library branch WiFi.
If you have any queries regarding the PressReader service please contact or call 0761 06 6100.
