DC Public Library: DC Public Library Adds Washington City Paper Archive
DC Public Library: DC Public Library Adds Washington City Paper Archive. “The Washington City Paper digital collection is being added to the Library’s People’s Archive. Washington City Paper has been Washington, D.C.’s principal alternative weekly newspaper since its first issue in February 1981, and focuses on local news and arts. The paper’s name has evolved over the years, from its original, ‘1981,’ to ‘City Paper’ in 1982, to ‘Washington City Paper’ in 1988. Notable writers who were once City Paper staffers include David Carr, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Jake Tapper, Katherine Boo, Clara Jeffery and Michael Schaffer.” The archive is still in progress, with issues from 1981 current available.
