historic newspapers

Historic Newspapers Available Digitally

The Romulus Public Library is actively working to digitize approximately 50 years of Romulus newspapers dated from 1968, making historic articles and images available and searchable online 24/7.  Thanks to generous donations from library supporters, at a cost of about $500 a year, more than 20 years of newspapers have already been digitized.  Access the newspapers online at http://www.romuluslibrary.org/newspapers.  These papers are available in full-text with images, just as they originally appeared.  To help the Romulus Public Library continue with this project, please consider a tax-deductible donation to make these papers available for generations to come.  Adopt a year, partial year or multiple years.  Donations of any amount can be sent to the library.
