Are you interested in exploring local history? Perhaps you wish to peruse the archives of local publications for a genealogy research project. You can view historic publications and documents with microfilm readers at the Moorhead Public Library, Crookston Public Library, Ada Public Library and the Fosston Public Library.
These libraries offer a collection of local historical publication archives on microfilm, inlcuding the Fargo Forum, Detroit Lakes Tribune, Norman County Index, Crookston Times and more. Plus, more documents are available to request with interlibrary loan.
Recently the microfilm readers in the Moorhead Public Library and Crookston Public Library were upgraded to provide an enhanced experience for users. Use of these devices is offered free-of-charge, with usual printing charges of $.10 per black and white page printed.
If you are interested in using a microfilm reader, please ask a staff member to get started.
