The Washoe County Library System offers free online access to The New York Times. Our subscription allows you to read the current issue and all digital content. (The Times Cooking and Crossword are not included in this subscription.)
Click here to go directly to the access code redemption page. Once you've registered (or logged in), you will receive an email confirming your 72 hour access. Once this access expires, you can simply repeat the process to get another 72 hours. There is no limit to the number of codes you can redeem, so you can continue to read The Times whenever you want, for as long as you want.
Focusing on early literacy and social-emotional learning, this story time integrates music, creative movement, and yoga to provide children with opportunities to promote self-awareness and imagination, and connect with others and the world around them.

Book returns are now open 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week at most library locations. We are still unable to accept donations or read-and-share items in book returns, so please use the book drops to return library materials only.
