PressReader issues


As you are aware there has been restrictions to the Stuff Ltd titles which took affect on the 1st of November. The initial communication has been that restrictions would only affect the PressReader app and readers would still be able to read the Stuff Ltd titles through the library website or using their  library card as long as it is via the PressReader website ( Unfortunately, it was miscommunicated with how the restrictions would be implemented. At request by the publisher Stuff Ltd content will no longer be accessed ‘offsite’ meaning that readers will no longer be able to access Stuff titles using the library website or logging into PressReader using their library card credentials.To read these titles you will need to visit one of our LibraryPlus sites and connect to the free wifi.  The titles affected are:

  • Sunday Star Times
  • Sunday News
