Any ideas?
Are in Wicklow? If not it possibly won't work. It seems that only a few libraries are signed upto this scheme and Wicklow is one.

You need to sign up for a seperate library ID using your name and a Wicklow address and Eircode
Do that here : https://lgma.iii.com/selfreg

After you've regged read the page that appears, it'll instruct to get a PIN by clicking a link.
Click the link.
I didn't get a pin but did see a link saying "edit pin" , click that.
It'll ask for your present pin but when you click in that box the pin they've allocated you will appear encrypted.
Below that are two boxes asking you to fill in your chosen pin. Do that. Click save.

That number wll now be your pin and you can enter it on the site or in the app.

Thanks to Sweetie for this pretty great bargain and for answering Qs!

just in relation to Zinio - they've changed the Zinio for Libraries app to RBDigital so maybe that's where the library got it wrong.

Just did it there, create an account on PressReader website and in your account section you should see "Library and Group" under "Social and Linked Networks". Click link and put in your library number and pin.

just signed up via the wicklow way

but on the pop up screen it said "PressReader HotSpot" and under that "complimentary access 6 days 23 hours left" - could that be because the library number i got is a temporary number

Irish listing is light enough - only 47 titles - Irish Indo, Examiner, Bloomberg and the rest were regional newspapers

lots in the UK/Aus/USA sections though

Sorry I was busy but that's pretty much it. I think I went through Wicklow library site rather than the link you put up and it either gave me a pin or let me choose one. Then in the app I chose Wicklow library and entered my library number (and maybe the pin!) Don't understand the hotspot thing yet either. Enjoy!

I was to get a temporary card number and get access to newspapers on press reader. I also got a message saying this is a 7 day trial... let's see what happens after that. Thanks for the help

Thanks, only Wicklow there, don't want to mess about with duplicate accounts etc, will use the browser until Fingal is included.

I think you may have to bring ID, proof of address and your temp number into a Wicklow library to get a permanent library card or keep setting up one week trials until it comes to your own service.

It appears Wicklow County Libraries are the only (Irish) Library that have opted into this, am I right ?

So 7 days are over from when I first registered. When I went back into the PressReader page today, I could click on the newspapers but only the front page was visible, the other were greyed out with a key symbol on them. So I logged out out, logged back in and it is showing I have 6 days and 23 hours left in my trial. so basically the timer has reset again and I have access from my browser.
Cant complaint... let's see how long this goes on for

Is this still working?

The past week, when trying to re-login using my library number & pin. I will enter my pin, then hit enter. It will reload the page then just bring me back to entering my pin again.

I've tried across multiple devices.

It's working for me there on PC. I'm using a proper library card I got a few weeks ago.

Working for me. I use the iPad app to read but once a week i need to go into the webpage from the PC and "renew" my temporary, 1 week, subscription. basically i just load a newspaper, i get a lock screen for anything but the front page, when i click on the lock the login/password pop-up window come on. i log in and the timer start again at 6 days, 23 hours etc etc. then it works again from the ipad for another week.
i have an "unofficial" library card number fwiw
