Did you know the library has newspapers? If you like to sit in a comfortable chair and read the newspaper, you should come to the second floor of the library and enjoy a seat by the window and read the following papers: King County Journal, News Tribune, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Seattle Times, and Wall Street Journal. We keep these papers upstairs for approximately one week and then at the Circulation Desk for a second week.
However, if you prefer reading newspapers online, you should try out some of our databases. Through Proquest, we have access to 18 Washington state newspapers from the Columbian to the Yakima Herald. We also have nine national newspapers, from the Christian Science Monitor to the Washington Post.
If you like browsing through old newspapers, reading stories and looking at old photographs and advertisements, you should try out the Historical Newspapers database. Through this, you can access the New York Times from the mid 1800s.
The newspaper databases can be used in the library. You can also access them from outside the library, by entering your Green River Community College student or staff identification number.
