Digital Archives of Emmetsburg Public Library

In 2007 and subsequent years with help from the Palo Alto County Gaming Development Corporation, the Emmetsburg Public Library has digitized the entire extant collection of Emmetsburg's and Mallard's newspapers from microfilm. The collection is hosted on websites by two different vendors. The sites feature word-searching by using Optical Character Recognition technology. Additionally, browsing by title and issue is equally facilitated. Use the links below to access the sites.
