The Henry Public Library has digitized our newspaper microfilm. This will allow for easier and more efficient access both for researchers and our staff. The digitization includes making the text of the newspapers searchable. In some cases, the quality of the microfilm makes this impossible, these items are still available for viewing. The archives are available at

Currently the earliest newspaper is from 1896 and the latest is in 2012 (there are gaps because we do not have all of the historical newspapers).

This project was funded by donations and the Library Per Capita Grant from the Secretary of States Office.

Please call the library at 364-2516 with questions or to schedule a demonstration.
