Newspapers and magazines

Read all about it

The City of Sydney Library provides over 450 magazine titles from the newest issues to back copies of your favourite reads. Check out the online catalogue for a list of all the magazine titles the library holds.

Our libraries have vast newspaper collections featuring Sydney titles plus others from around NSW, Australia and the world. The list below shows which titles you'll find at which branch.

Many titles are also available online – you can search through newspaper databases using the library's login details. Members can access some of the databases from anywhere (for example, work or home) while others can only be accessed from a library branch.
