Where isn’t the Notebook? Help us improve our reach

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.


The Notebook‘s Fall Guide to High Schools hit the stands this week. To pick up a copy, head to any of the sites shown in the map above.

With the release of the newest issue, I’d like to take this opportunity to ask our readers a question. We’re looking for gaps in our distribution and we could use your neighborhood expertise for input. So, where does the Notebook need to be that it isn’t already?

Getting your hands on a copy of the Notebook should not be difficult, so please help us identify where we need to make it easier.

The map indicates the 750 or so locations where copies of the Notebook‘s print edition can be found. These sites include nearly all District schools, charter schools, public library branches, and various other sites around the city. We’re interested in finding new sites, especially places that will help us reach people who might be unaware of or have difficulty procuring a copy of the Notebook.

Zoom in on the regions where you live or work, or on the areas of the city that you’re really familiar with. See if there’s a stack of Notebooks close by. If not, and if you have a good suggestion for a potential site, please send me a note.

Thank you,

Shawn Phillips, business manager
