6 MICROFILMED REELS of the SILVER CREEK SAND newspaper have just been added to our digital archives website!
The years included are 1908-1964.
A huge THANK-YOU goes out to the Village of Silver Creek for funding the addition of these 16 reels!
Also, a huge THANK-YOU to Camy Rea, Charles Noyd, and Neeli Noyd for presenting this project to the Village of Silver Creek, for the consideration of funding!
The online addition of these 20,393 pages will benefit a tremendous amount of people for generations to come!
The newspapers in the database are fully searchable by keyword and date (making it easy to quickly explore historical content). Use the archives to gain a local perspective on historical news, to research your family history, or to simply read about a person or event of interest. Additional pages will be added as our project progresses. We’re now finished adding all of our Silver Creek newspapers.

Our patrons have really been enjoying the use of our new DIGITAL MICROFILM READER!
Thanks to a new state-of-the-art digital microfilm reader system, our patrons can access the library’s microfilmed collection of area newspapers, with the latest technology available. The new system replaced a 13 year-old system that quit working shortly before it was replaced.
The ST ViewScan III Digital Reader/Printer/Viewer/Scanner is equipped with ability to capture digital images from microfilm, microfiche and 16mm or 35mm film.
The device is very user-friendly, with an abundance of options for image adjustments and editing. Users may save to a USB, Google Drive, Dropbox, email directly from the device, or directly to their Family Search account.
The library staff is available to assist patrons with the new microfilm reader anytime during operating hours.
This project was made possible through a grant from the Merrick Foundation, Inc, along with funds from the City of Central City and the Library’s endowment fund.
