If you have a library card or e-card from the Washington State Library, you can search or browse NewsBank’s collection of world and U.S. newspapers as well as take advantage of the America’s GenealogyBank collection of obituaries, historical books, and historical documents.
Just go to Newspapers at the Washington State Library, then click on the links to Access World News or America’s GenealogyBank and enter your last name and card number.
