iamberks said: I found a post on this blog about the first issue of the Twin Cities Reader. Do Special Collections have TC Readers or old issues of Sweet Potato archived? If so, how do I find them?

Yes, We do have old issues of both Twin Cities Reader (1976-1977) and Sweet Potato (1979-1981). Both can be found in our online catalog and can be viewed in the Special Collections department at the Minneapolis Central Library. Special Collections has hundreds of local magazines and newspapers covering a range of time periods and subjects. Come take a look!
