Access The Online Collection

**Please be advised that the site is currently undergoing maintenance and may not look and behave as usual. We are working as quickly as we can to roll out improvements to the search and browse features, and we appreciate your patience with the temporary site.**

Each weekly newspaper carries local, regional, national and international news. The digitization of historical Huron County newspapers from microfilm and hard copy holdings is an ongoing long-term project that will continue for years into the future. Public access to newspapers is limited by copyright (current to 50 years after death of publisher); newspapers with current copyright restrictions will not be posted online without the permission of the publisher.

Newspapers on microfilm are still available at Huron County Library branches, including more recent issues of local weeklies. Note: Missing issues reflect gaps in the original microfilm or newsprint collections scanned.

**Huron County Library generally does not own the rights to material in the digitized newspaper collection and, therefore, cannot grant or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute the material. It is the responsibility of the user to seek permission from the copyright holder for any purpose other than research and private study.
