Social Distancing Doesn’t Mean Disconnecting

Kamloops, BC – May 7, 2020 – The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library is doing its best to help patrons stay connected. Did you know that your library card can help connect you with information and entertainment from around the world?

The PressReader platform available on provides online access to thousands of newspapers and magazines, including the National PostVancouver SunEdmonton Sun and The Guardian. PressReader also includes multilingual papers in Punjabi, Spanish, and French.

“With remote access, communities can get all the PressReader content they’d normally find at the library, even when they’re not inside its four walls,” says Melisssa Lowenberg, Manager of Community Libraries and Engagement. “Students use it for their research and learning. News buffs use it to stay on top of current events. Daily readers use it to catch up on their favourite publications, or discover something entirely new.”

To access PressReader, visit and click on the link under Digital Libraries, or install the PressReader app on your device. Sign in by choosing the library login, selecting Thompson-Nicola Regional Library, and enter your library card’s barcode and pin.

If you need technical assistance, the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library staff are happy to help. If you’d like to get a new card, you can register for one on our website by clicking on ‘get a library card online‘.
