If you have a library card and a newspaper subscription, you may be paying too much! Do you read the Calgary Herald or Calgary Sun every day? How about the Globe and Mail? These and many others are freely available online, through our e-library.
Starting from our e-library, select Newspapers and Magazines. Then, select “Newspaper Direct Press Display”. This is our most often-used database, by far. Newspapers from around the world are sorted by name, by language, and by country, so it’s easy to find your preferred papers. Additionally, the electronic articles can be saved, printed, e-mailed, translated(!) or even shared on sites like Facebook, and posted to your blog.
When the library participates in community events, and we have the opportunity to show the public this incredible database, we consistently hear that folks “had no idea” how much is available through our website.
Cancel your newspaper subscriptions, and start exploring our e-library! Use the money you’ll save to buy a CPL membership for a friend, and you’ll still have some dough left over. Now, isn’t that good news?
