Caryn,

I'm not sure what newspapers you use, but The Tribune and Deseret News  
give us 10 free copies every day as part of the Newspapers in  
Education program. We have teachers that use the extra copies and we  
also allow students to take free copies.  It has saved us several  
hundred dollars a year. I don't get the weekend papers, but when  
students or faculty ask about them I steer them to the free digital  
versions available through Pioneer Library.

Our local newspaper also gives us a free subscription.
