More than just scrapbooking local history: Northwest Room clipping files

Remember that long-ago news event that made headlines way back, can’t remember exactly when, but it was something about a missing sailboat. Or you saw an art exhibit, decades ago at the Puyallup Fair and would like to browse through the catalogue once more. Tacoma Public Library’s Northwest Room’s clippings files may be just the resource for reviving those old memories and help you with your research. The files span through decades and hundreds of subjects on Tacoma, Pierce County and Washington State, from popular topics like Tacoma - Crime to more obscure ones like Washington - Antitrust violations. A cross-referenced subject index is available to aid you in navigating the files.
