PressReader Update – Stuff Ltd content restrictions

Do you use PressReader? Stuff Ltd PressReader publications, including the Dominion Post are now only available to view on library computers or by using a phone or device connected to the library wifi.

This means they will no longer be able to be accessed remotely either via the PressReader app or by logging in to the website using your browser outside of a Wellington City Libraries’ branch.

To access Stuff Ltd publications in our libraries:

  • Use one of the Library computers and login to PressReader via the library website
  • Connect to the wifi with your own device at any branch and login to PressReader via the library website

This change may take effect over the next few days. It is important to note that this was a decision made by Stuff Ltd, and the restrictions only apply to Stuff Publications. PressReader provides access to thousands of other publications that you can continue to enjoy outside of the Library, at home or using the app.

Below is a full list of the Stuff titles that are affected:

  • Sunday Star Times
  • Sunday News
  • Southland Times (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Waikato Times (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Dominion Post (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • The Press (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Nelson Mail (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Timaru Herald (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Manawatu Standard (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Taranaki Daily News (Weekday & Weekend Editions)
  • Marlborough Express
  • TV Guide
  • NZ House and Garden
  • NZ Gardener
