The Internet has made it very easy to find all kinds of information, but unfortunately, it's not as easy to tell if what you are reading is accurate. The South San Francisco Public Library (SSFPL) is now providing free access to SSF library cardholders (library card numbers beginning 29048) to the online news service, NewsBank, which solves the problem of wondering if the information you are reading is credible.

What’s Included:

  • San Francisco Chronicle (January 1, 1985-present)
  • San Mateo Daily Journal (2000-present)
  • Over 100 newspapers and magazines from California

Also, for the next 12 months, the SSF library has access to thousands of newspapers and magazines published across the country. This collection has a helpful categories page, so you can easily find news on the 2020 presidential campaign, health, technology, or many others.

How to Access

  • Visit the library's website ( and click on the menu option that reads Online Library (
  • Scroll down the page to the heading "Newspapers" to access the Bay Area Collection, U.S. Newspaper Collection, The San Francisco Chronicle, or the San Mateo Daily Journal.
