Among the local newspapers subscribed to by the library are the Monmouth Daily Review Atlas, the Galesburg Register Mail and the Zephyr (Galesburg). Of regional interest are the Peoria Journal Star and the Chicago Tribune. For those with a taste for national news, the library offers subscriptions to the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post weekly edition. If you are interested in international news check out the Guardian Weekly (Great Britain) or practice your Spanish with the El Pais Weekly (Spain).
Back issues dating up to three months are stored in the back of the library. Just ask at the front desk if, for instance, you want to look at what the Chicago Tribune had to say about the Cubs 2009 season and you missed reading it when it first came out.
