Library Press Display: Bringing the World's News to You

Are you interested in getting news from other countries or cities across the U.S.? Or looking for foreign perspectives on American issues or to improve your language skills? If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then you'll love Library Press Display.

Library Press Display is a great resource for current newspapers from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, as well as Chicago and other cities in the U.S.. The collection includes 1,200 titles in 48 languages with a 60-day backfile.

You can choose to have articles read to you or translated. All newspapers come to you in their original format, in full color with photos and pages you can turn or enlarge. Classified ads and advertisements are included.

The 3rd floor kiosk for accessing Library Press Display

You can access Library Press Display from home with a DPPL library card or in the library at our dedicated press display terminal on the 3rd floor near the current newspapers. It is also available from any public access computer in the library. It’s like having the actual newspaper in your hands.

Can I access this resource from home?

Yes, you can!

With a valid Des Plaines Public Library, the link above will take you right to the online resource.

Don't have a library card? Stop by sometime and get one. Any Des Plaines resident can apply.
