The Special Collections Department of the DC Public Library presents an exhibit on The Evening Star newspaper in the Great Hall lobby - to be displayed through mid-April. The exhibit features historic photos, archival documents and original newspapers from Washington's premier daily paper. All materials are from the Washingtoniana Collection, including the Star Collection of the D.C. Community Archives and the Star Photo Collection.

Library cardholders now have access to the Washington Evening Star online database. Every issue from 1852-1975 is available in this digital archive. And the complete Star archive is still available on microfilm in the Washingtoniana Room.
