  3. Create a account
  4. Read your news!

Here are a few other details to know:

  • Access is limited to Schaumburg cardholders only.
  • This does not include access to the WSJ app or WSJ+ content.
  • While we're on the topic, we have similar access to the New York Times, too!

You can get access through a few places on the Library's website, including the Movies, Music & Magazines page, as well as with the rest of the electronic resources we subscribe to under E-library and Research a Topic.
