A new column covering random news from the newspapers on microfilm collection of the Washington State Library in Tumwater has recently been launched. This is just part of the broader Between the Lines blog.
Not everything is online. Washington State history buffs are welcome to come to WSL and view any of the reels from the world's largest collection of Washington State newspapers. Or it can be sent to your library via interlibrary loan.
Or, you can Ask a Librarian for further help.
