Newspaper Articles Index
 
The Library’s local imprint newspaper holdings span more than 200 years. Our oldest issue, volume 1, number 1 of the American Eagle is dated May 10, 1799. All of our newspaper holdings have been microfilmed and are available during regular library hours. For a complete list of our holdings, consult our library catalog under the subject American newspapers – Pennsylvania or consult these lists:

To provide subject access to the wealth of information contained in these newspapers, library staff and volunteers began to index selected portions of the papers. The multi-volume sets of marriage and death indexes in the Marx Room and the online obituary index (see above) are two results of this work.
A third project, begun in the 1930s, was an index to local newspaper articles. For each article, an index card with a heading, short description, and citation was prepared and filed by heading. Over the years, this file grew to 45 catalog drawers of cards. To make this local history information available, the information on these cards has been transcribed to a computer database.

MAIL SERVICE - Photocopies of microfilmed newspaper articles cost $5.00 per article. There is a limit of 10 items per request. All requests must be made by mail. Requests for 5 or more articles require additional postage. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope to receive a reply. The library will provide the best possible reproduction from our microfilm. Some papers were old and worn when microfilmed, and this affects the quality of the copy.
