Club Penguin Times (formerly known as The Penguin Times before Issue 100 and also known as Club Herbert Times during the Operation: Blackout) is Club Penguin's local newspaper, which comes out every Thursday. Prior to July 2011, the newspaper was released every Friday. It is one of the only sources of information, other than books. Aunt Arctic is its editor-in-chief, as well as its formal help columnist. On November 18, 2010 the newspaper got a new look. Now, there are only two pages and you have to scroll. This is to help the Club Penguin team to work on things other than the newspaper. Their headquarters has been the Book Room since the Marvel Super Hero Takeover 2012 started.
