[Libs-Or] Oregonian in the Metro Area

Outside the downtown Portland core area delivery seems to be up to the contract distributor.  Some are offering to delivery daily for an additional fee ($4.50 a week was quoted in the Raleigh Hills/Beaverton area).  I was wondering if public libraries could become outlets - get a newspaper distribution box installed in the lobby or on the porch. That way you could get the paper delivered and patrons would know they could buy a personal copy at the library, too.  Just a thought....

So this morning, my porch at home was bare and so was our porch at the library.  No Oregonian.  I felt a little sad.

However, we've already had patrons, who also found their front porches bare, coming to the library expecting to find a copy of the Oregonian here.

As we saw from Mary Kay on Sunday, she's had no good response from the Oregonian.   How have you in the Metro Area where our papers are delivered by the same people who deliver to homes (so we get no delivery) dealt with this?   Any suggestions?
