Well even if the world news seems to be getting worse by the day, but the good news is that the way to get your daily paper gets better and better!
Edinburgh Libraries PressReader app service has had a wee upgrade – now if you visit a library and open up the app you get 3 days worth of use to download from home as well.
PressReader has over 4000 newspapers and magazines from all round the world that are available to download for free before they even hit the newsagents. To use it you need to login at a PressReader HotSpot (i.e. a library!) and then you are free to download up to 20 titles a day from the library, home or indeed anywhere with WiFi. After 3 days you need to pop into your local library and reactivate your connection (and pick up a nice paperback whilst you are at it!).
All the top Scottish and many national newspapers are available such as the Edinburgh Evening news, The Scotsman, The Herald, The Daily Mail and The Guardian. There are also publications from over 100 countries including Poland, America and even Brazil (if you fancy reading about the Olympics first hand!).
