The library has microfilm copies of our local newspaper which date back 200 years, as well as local cemetery records. Our microfilm machine can be used to research obituaries, newspaper articles, and local history – and it’s open to the public during library hours. Pages can be printed ($0.25 each) or saved locally to a USB device. Please speak to a librarian if you need assistance with the machine operations.

The library also accepts research requests from non-residents and can forward scanned pages by email. As all microfilm searches are performed manually, there is no set time on when such requests will be completed and no guarantee that all information can be located.

Inquiries can be made to staff@miltonpalibrary.org or director@miltonpalibrary.org.
