In CityNews’ effort to satiate even the most ravenous of municipal government geeks, we are proud to introduce CityNews U in conjunction with the release of our new site, and in celebration of CityNews' 7th anniversary just around the corner.

What is CityNews U?

Over the years, we’ve stumbled across some fantastic resources that changed the way we thought about the many complicated aspects of local government. We couldn't let these great books just sit on some shelf somewhere in an Amazon warehouse, we knew it was time to share all of this great information with our wonderful readers.

With that in mind, our staff pooled our collective knowledge and came up with a definitive list of our favorites.

Not only that, but CityNews U has several of our favorite California-centric fiction and essays for anyone looking to get a creative take on our state’s history.

But wait, there’s even more! Yep. We’re not quite done yet. In addition to these great sources, we also have completely free, fascinating courses that can be taken online.
