Searchable documents
The following are scanned newspapers dated as far back as 1901.  The originals are housed at the library and were donated by the Palestine Preservation Project Society who found them in the Fife Opera House.  There are binders available for public viewing and also CD's that can be viewed using our computers. 
Copies cost .10 cents per page or $1.00 for color and an extra .50 cents for photo paper.
Submitted documents from patrons are also available.  If you wish to add to our collection, please contact the library. 
We will scan your items and return them as soon as possible.

'Volume' refers to the binder the copies are in, 'tab' is the markers dividing the pages in the binders and 'disk' refers to the CD it is in; all are located in the Genealogy room at the library. The original papers are stored in the basement. All of these files have been saved as XML Paper Specification (XPS) files which is an electronic file format that preserves document formatting and enables file sharing that retains exactly the format intended.  Files are searchable by key word.
