The Henry Public Library is in the process of digitizing 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 1965 (there are gaps - both because we have more reels to digitize and because we do not have all of the historical newspapers).

This is an ongoing project of the Henry Public Library and is being funded by donations and the Library Per Capita Grant from the Secretary of States Office.
