Get Unlimited Digital Access in English, 中文, and Español

10 free articles a month go pretty fast and the basic $195 annual subscription might feel impossibly out of reach. That’s why we’re excited to provide you digital access to the New York Times — in house and off site. Get breaking news, reviews, multimedia, and opinion on Washington, business, sports, movies, travel, books, jobs, education and more — here or wherever you find yourself in the world.


Access in the library (unlimited access to articles)

  • Connect to the Library’s WiFi or use a library computer
  • First-time users will need to register here (provide an email, create a password)
  • Returning users can log in at nytimes.com

Access off site (72 hours of unlimited access)

  • Log in (or register if it’s your first time) on your device or computer
  • Open the following URL in a new tab, then enter your library card number and 8-digit PIN for access.

What Happened to the LPL App?

There a new way to carry LPL in your pocket, and it’s not from an app store. We said goodbye to the LPL app in December and replaced it with something better: Bibliocommons Mobile.

Whether you’re Android or Apple, the switch is simple and takes less than 5 minutes. If you’re familiar with saving links to your home screen, jump right in.


We think you’ll be impressed:

  • Get instant access from your home screen just like the app (that’s not changing)
  • It’s faster, easier, quicker
  • It looks and works the same on all devices
  • Seamless browsing with better lists
  • Easy to bookmark
  • It’s FREE

Why are we doing this?

  • Advances in technology​ (responsive design) make mobile browsing feel like an app
  • Having both (paying for an app while having a free site do the same thing) is duplication
  • The LPL app isn’t cheap— we’ll be able to explore other products and services for you

We’ve included steps below for making the switch. If you get stuck:

  • Stop by any of our service desks for help
  • Chat with a librarian online
  • Call 785-843-3833 for assistance
  • Chat with one of our Tech Staff at the lower level Tech Desk

NOTE: “LPL Mobile” is the name we chose when saving the link to our home screen. You can call it whatever you’d like!
