Enjoy free and unlimited access to The New York Times online through the Lafayette Public Library, remotely on any device or from a Library computer or WiFi.
The New York Times enables our Library members to have three-day sessions with unlimited access; every time you use our link, you can refresh that three-day access. All you need to do is create a NY Times account, and set your browser to remember that login info. After that, any time you go to our special remote access link, you can refresh your subscription.
- Sign up for an account at https://nytimes.com/register
- Go to our special access site (and keep this bookmarked for repeat use): https://cityoflafayette.com/nyt
- Redeem code, and sign in to your new account (tip: have the browser remember your password).
- Scroll past the options to sign up for email newsletters, and select "No thanks"
- You will be redirected to the home page of the New York Times
Note: even within your 3-day subscription window, you may need to go directly to the NY Times website to take advantage of the access code; choosing a story in your browser news feed may not cause your code to be recognized.
Tip: Find these links anytime by clicking on the Research button on our homepage, or the Browse & Find menu, and navigating to Resources A-Z.
