San Antonio Public Library visitors are invited to use any public computer at any library location to access online content from the New York Times. Users only need an email address to access the site, or can sign in using a Facebook or Google account. Users who would like to access from home simply need to visit mysapl.org/services to access the newspaper under “databases." From there, cardholders will create an account and redeem a special code for one-day access that renews each day, so Library customers can access the New York Times every day!

Dear friend - Last night’s presidential election results left many of us confused, worried and wondering how it will affect the lives of our loved ones and neighbors. At NOWCastSA, we don’t have the wise words to make sense of it all, but we do have the tools to listen to what you have to say and make sure you’re always a part of the conversation -- even when you can’t be there in person. That’s what we do.
