NEWSPAPER ARCHIVES: Access to PA and NY Newspapers!
March 16, 2022 - August 31, 2022
We are excited to offer our patrons the updated Newspaper Archives. Instead of just offering access to our local newspapers, you now have access to many historic newspapers in Pennsylvania AND New York. This resource is great for genealogy and other research.
The hosting company will soon be uploading more years of the Wellsboro Gazette. Thank you for your patience during this process.
The hosting company is charging the library for access to these newspapers, so you must have a Green Free Library card to use the Archives. However, the Archives is still a FREE SERVICE FOR OUR PATRONS!
Please contact the staff if you are having issues or need a card. Below are some tips for using this site.
1. Go to Newspaper Archives under Highlighted Links on our homepage OR click the Resources tab and then Genealogy tab. The Archives is the first link on the page.
2. Sign into the Archives with your library barcode, starting with the GFL before the numbers.
3. Then sign in with your account under User Login at top right or create a free account. You will need an email and create a password to access your account.
4. Once you are signed in, search by location, date, publications, or search through hundreds of newspapers, mostly historic and not current subscriptions, from across Pennsylvania and New York.
5. If searching only for Wellsboro newspapers, narrow search by Browse Location and put in Wellsboro, PA, US. You will be shown a list of newspapers relating to Wellsboro. Or, click the Publications tab at the top to see all the available newspapers. You can narrow your search by typing the location in the box on the right-hand side of the page.
