Newspapers and magazines

Digital versions of newspapers and magazines are available to our library members via LibrariesWest, and you can download or stream copies to your tablet, smartphone, Kindle, PC or laptop.


You can access the full text of over 1,000 daily, weekly and monthly newspapers from over 100 countries, including 166 local, regional and national UK titles.

Newspapers, and their supplements, are always available online on the day of publication and back issues from the previous 3 months are also available for most titles.


We are sorry, we have some technical issues and can’t offer the Libby service (digital magazines, digital comics and graphic novels) at the moment.

We are working hard to get the service back to you.
