The hometown printed newspaper of Berkeley, CA
It's time to subscribe to the Berkeley Times, and to support Berkeley's hometown printed newspaper. Regular production of Berkeley Times began in October 2010, the newspaper is published twice per month, and now in its 13th volume. You won't find it online, instead look for it at finer bookstores (e.g., Pegasus Shattuck & Solano, Mrs. Dalloways). Or subscribe, and it will be delivered to your front door by a Berkeley youth.
In each printed edition, readers will discover local stories about what matters most to permanent residents: the education of its children, the safety and conditions of its streets, its homes and its parks, prep sports, and the local art scene. And rather than emphasizing argument and opinion, Berkeley Times emphasizes the people of this community -- those who co-create this amazing town each day.
An independent newspaper, Berkeley Times is full of heart, humor-filled, and kid-friendly; after all, this paper is intended to attract and engage all generations of readers. Overall, the tone is warm and friendly and it reminds readers why they love living here.

Though the demands on individuals to contribute will be relatively modest, the payoffs to the community will be immense – if everyone contributes something.

Overall, Berkeley Times is about truth and essence, growth and learning, about creating community – it’s really about love.
