FCPL Launches The New York Times Online

Do you like reading The New York Times? Now you can read your favorite news, business, and lifestyle columns online at any FCPL location.

Forsyth County Public Library is pleased to announce the launch of The New York Times Online, a service that will allow our patrons to view the newspaper online with a library computer or tablet, or by connecting their own device to the FCPL Unplugged wireless network.

Rather than waiting for the print version of The New York Times to arrive at a library branch, patrons can now view not only Today’s Headlines, but breaking news, videos, archives, and other features, as listed below:

  • Easy to use, browsable international news, including breaking news that won’t be printed in the paper 
  • Access to exclusive interactive videos, slideshows, and photos
  • Ability to search and browse thousands of “Times Topics”
  • Access to the past seven days of NYTimes print via “Today’s Paper”
  • Access to New York Times articles published between 1851 through 1922, and between 1981 through current day 
  • Full access to International New York Times to serve patrons the most relevant international content 
  • Access to book reviews, including a full archive dating back to 1981 
  • Market Data charts, indexes and interactive tools 
  • Ability to create and manage personalized stock portfolios  
  • Ability to share favorite articles with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, and email

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Visit any library branch and log onto a library computer or connect your own mobile device to the FCPL Unplugged wireless network
  2. Create a user account and log in at nytimes.com/register
  3. Enjoy complimentary unlimited access as long as you are in the library
