Not the "one copy that can't leave the library" kind.

My community college has the Rockland Journal News, U.S. Today and New York Times. I really appreciate being able to pick up a free Nytimes copy 5 days a week(newsstand cost is now $1.50). School doesn't have copies on weekends though. And sometimes the Nytimes runs out after 1PM.

My one has deals where as a student you can buy a years subscription for the three major newspapers for about $20 a year. (you get a little card to show them)

However asides from the first few weeks of the semester when they are recruiting people to sign up for it you can walk up and take them for free and no one ever questions you :D

We used to get the NYTimes courtesy of Lehman Brothers. That's gone now, for obvious reasons. We get a couple others I think, but I don't read newspapers. They're too cumbersome and inefficient.
