What is PressReader?
PressReader is a website and app that gives SFL cardholders access to 7,000 magazines and newspapers from all over the world on any internet connected device. With PressReader you will have unlimited access to publications as soon as they are available on the shelf and you will have access to back issues for up to 90 days.

Unlike other digital copies of articles, PressReader makes it easy to zoom in on text and gives you options for how you can “flip through the pages”. PressReader has magazines and newspapers from many countries and in many languages, but they can be instantly translated into 19 languages and the articles can be read aloud to you!

- As an SFL cardholder you already have an account, so select “Sign In”.
- On the Sign In page, select “Library Card or Group”
- On the Select Library page, type “Stonington Free Library”
- You will then need to enter your library card number and PIN
- Make sure that you enter your library card number with no spaces, dashes, or dots.
- If you do not know your library number or PIN, contact SFL and we will help you!
- Select “I agree to allowing PressReader to verify and exchange my registration with my public library”.
- COMMON PROBLEM: If you have submitted your library card number & PIN and PressReader then asks for an email & password or first & last name –> select “cancel”. You do not need to create an account. Canceling that prompt will bring you to PressReader with full access through your library card.
