The library has The New York Times, The Dunn Daily Record, and The News and Observer among other newspapers in our Microfilm Collection. Anyone can use the microfilm, it is located in the basement of Wiggins Memorial Library in the metal cabinets that you can see from the elevator. Some of our titles go back to the Civil War era.
