The Reference Department recently obtained a new microfilm machine. The new machine allows a user to view the entire page of a newspaper, as well as fine tune adjustments so that poor quality newsprint and microfilm can be brought into better focus for viewing. Users are also able to crop sections of the newspapers and save to a flash drive. Anyone is allowed to use the new machine after brief instruction.
The Reference Department is currently working on creating a new web page. We hope to add new information as quickly as possible. We are sorry for any inconvience this may cause. Please feel free to contact us at 816-232-8151 if you have any questions. The Reference Department’s Obituary Index is still available at this time. Thank you!
