On May 15th, 2017, East Central Regional Library will discontinue its print subscriptions to the Pioneer Press. We will continue to subscribe to the print editions of the Star Tribune, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and local newspapers.
Patrons will still be able to access the St. Paul Pioneer Press digitally via Proquest Newsstand Complete.
This decision was not made lightly. As a public library, we value offering a variety of reputable news sources for our patrons. However, in the face of exorbitant price increases, we believe continuing to subscribe to the Pioneer Press would be an unwise use of taxpayer money.
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments about this upcoming change.
