The library is excited to provide online searching for area newspapers that are in the public domain (anything before 1925). We will add additional years as they move into the public domain or when we can otherwise gain copyright permission to do so. 

You can search the following publications:

The Grinnell Herald (1871-1925)

The Grinnell Register (1911-1925)

Poweshiek County Herald (1870-1871)

The Signal (1882-1886)

The Malcom Bulletin (1871-1871)

The Montezuma Standard (1871-1872)

This project is funded by the Friends of DCL.

The online search interface is provided by Advantage Archives, a Cedar Rapids company providing newspaper digitization throughout Iowa and beyond.
