The downtown Rock Island public library.

Paywall-free guest access is available to RIPL cardholders for 24 hours with the link from the library website. Users can search the NYT archive of more than 19,000 Times-tested recipes, find helpful kitchen guides for beginners and experts alike, and use a customizable Recipe Box to keep you organized. New users will need to create a New York Times account after logging in for the first time. To get started, visit the library website.

If you’ve resolved to use more of the library’s online services in the New Year, Rock Island Public Library has also added free access to Niche Academy online tutorials. The Rock Island Public Library Academy is available at no added charge to any Internet user and includes more than 30 short tutorials on using online resources for eBooks, genealogy and history, movies and music, magazines and newspapers, legal help, books and reading, and research and learning. Additional tutorials are available for more general topics, such as using Google resources. To find these free tutorials, visit the Online Research Tools, and Books, Music and Movies pages at www.rockislandlibrary.org

Digital resources and tools are available anytime with an Internet connection.  With the exception of Niche Academy and products that must be used inside the library, digital services require a Rock Island Public Library card. RIPL cards are available at no added charge to any resident of Rock Island or the Milan-Blackhawk Area Public Library District. For details and to apply, see the online application at www.rockislandlibrary.org or visit any Rock Island Public Library.
