New York Times online - Enjoy unlimited free access

New York Times online access

Enjoy free and unlimited access to The New York Times online through the Lafayette Public Library, remotely on any device or from a Library computer or WiFi.

How it Works

The New York Times enables our Library members to have 3-day sessions with unlimited access; every time you use our link, you can refresh that 3-day access. All you need to do is create a NY Times account, and set your browser to remember that login info. After that, any time you go to our special remote access link, you can refresh your 3-day unlimited use pass.

At the Library

Use the Library Access link ( to create an account or log in. From Library computers or WiFi, once you are logged in you can enjoy unlimited, free access to the New York Times online.

Away from the Library

Use the Remote Access link (https:// when you are away from the Library for unlimited, free access to the New York Times on any device. You will be prompted to redeem a code, and then to log in or create your account. The code permits you (when logged in to your account) to have free access for 3 days. Every time you go to our link, you can redeem the code again. If you set your browser to remember your NY Times login, then every time you navigate to and hit the Redeem Code button, your subscription is refreshed. (You may still see ads suggesting you purchase a paid subscription, but you do not need to do so).

Tip: Find these links anytime by clicking on the Research button on our homepage, or the Browse & Find menu, and navigating to Resources A-Z.
