Chicago Tribune: Column: Library’s digital archives of Blue Island newspaper will soon provide a glimpse into south suburb’s roots. “The Blue Island Public Library is finishing up a grant-funded digitization project that will soon allow public access to editions of the Sun-Standard newspaper from 1911 to 1990 and provide a valuable resource for genealogists, researchers and homeowners. The pages offer a glimpse into the rich history of Blue Island and other south suburban communities. The newspaper chronicled government, crime and other news, but also told stories of everyday life among neighbors.”
