The South Pasadena Public Library, through its membership in the Southern California Library Cooperative, now offers PressReader, a platform for reading e-newspapers and e-magazines.

Available on web browsers or as an app on Android and iOS devices, PressReader offers unlimited access to newspapers and magazines from over 120 countries in over 60 languages, with the ability to instantly translate English articles into up to 21 languages. Popular available titles include Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, The Guardian, The Insider, Smithsonian Magazine, Variety, and New York Post.

Users may digitally view magazines and newspapers as they would appear in print, or convert articles into a text-only view. For the convenience of commuters and travelers, magazines and newspapers may be downloaded to read later, even when offline.
