FREE access to top Magazines (UK Only)

Few people seem to know it but many UK Libraries allow local residents to access top quality magazines and newspapers online – for FREE!

You can find magazines like Good Housekeeping, The Week, Amateur Photographer, New Scientist, Cosmopolitan, The Economist, Artists & Illustrators.  The available newspapers include The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Independent and The Daily Mail.

To help people access this incredible resource, Web of the Week has compiled a list of each of the councils offering the PressReader and RB Digital services. 

As you will see, over 90% offer one service or the other (and many offer both).  I am sorry for those whose Councils don’t yet offer this.  However, this will hopefully change soon. 

THERE IS NO NEED TO ENTER ANY BANK CARD DETAILS OR MAKE ANY FORM OF PAYMENT AT ANY TIME IF YOU ARE DOING THIS CORRECTLY.

  • Some services only give 30 days access at a time.  You will need to login again at the end of that time to get the next month
  • Web of the Week accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the service or for any use of misuse or error in sign-up. We repeat – if you are using this service through a UK library in the correct way, you should never need to make any payment and you should never enter your bank card details.
  • Web of the Week is not responsible for and has no control over the linked sites.  We can never endorse or recommend information, products or services.
  • Web of the Week takes no responsibility for any loss or damage suffered as a result of using the linked web sites or as a result of using the information published on any of the pages of the linked web sites.
