BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The 30th edition of North Dakota’s Blue Book has been published.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple was slated to accept the ceremonial first copy of the book at the state Capitol on Monday. But Secretary of State Al Jaeger says the presentation has been delayed due to a spring snow storm.

The Blue Book compiles statistical and historical information that often isn’t available elsewhere.

The Blue Book is so named because of the dark blue cover that adorns most editions. It has been published sporadically throughout state history. The first editions were called the “state manual” and the “legislative manual.”

Since 1995, the Blue Book has been published every two years with the help of volunteers.
