New York Times


Online Access

Santa Barbara Public Library now offers 72 hour digital passes to the NYT. 

Next, you will need to either create or log-in to a previously created New York Times account. Once activated, the pass is good for 72 hours and you do not need to redeem the code each day, just go to the New York Times website. You will need to make sure you are signed into your NYT account.

After 72 hours, redeem the code again to access another 72 hour pass.

The library subscription is a Basic Digital Pass, so there are some sections that are only available to paid subscribers, like the Wirecutter and Cooking sections. Access to the NYT is made possible through the California State Library.
