Community Access

Putting News In the Hands Of All Memphians 

In the age of digital information, virtual meetings, and social distancing, Memphians are proving that we are adaptable and resilient during difficult and changing times.

The Daily Memphian is committed to keeping the entire community informed, improving literacy rates, and preparing the next generation of Memphians to participate in shaping the city’s future. We do this by providing free subscription access to select community organizations and every school in Memphis and Shelby County.

Subscriptions will be set up by school or organization. We request that you contact us directly, complete the application and provide us with the necessary information. For an application or help requesting access, send a note to
