Please note that our Online Newspapers provider will change from 1 May 2024.  Our new provider will be Borrowbox.

Online newspapers are available to read on a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Your library card gives you free access to over 200 hundred newspapers including some Irish titles. These can be downloaded and read on your devices.

Clare Libraries’ online newspaper service is provided by BorrowBox. You can download the BorrowBox app from the Apple and Android app stores. You can also access BorrowBox through your web browser on a desktop or laptop computer.

How it works

  • You can browse and search newspapers online or in the BorrowBox app, 24 hours a day.
  • Back issues of some of your favourite newspapers are also available.
