When you connect to PressReader through Winnipeg Public Library, a small window will pop-up telling you that you are in the Winnipeg Public Library PressReader HotSpot and the time that you have left to use PressReader.

 

 

We are able to give everyone 2 days (48 hours) of continuous off-site access to PressReader following each successful login. This means that you will not be required to return to the library site and enter your library card again during that time, and you will be able to download issues to the PressReader app without interruption.
 

However, after your 2 days have timed out, you will need to reconnect!
 

It may not be immediately clear to you that your Library access has expired. How will you know that your 2 days of access have timed out?

  • One good clue is if you're asked to pay for an article that you want to download. When you are authenticated through the library, all content in PressReader is free. If you are ever asked to pay for content, simply reconnect to PressReader using the steps in the FAQ Guide "How do I connect to PressReader?". 

           

 

  • Another might be that the HotSpot icon (the coffee cup) isn't green to indicate that you have an active connection:

  • Again, if you notice that your hotspot is no longer active, simply reconnect to PressReader using the steps in the FAQ Guide "How do I connect to PressReader?".
