Whitaker Library's Local Newspapers Holdings

Whitaker Library has historical newspapers from the local community. Some have been digitized and are available online, while other newspapers are only available in microfilm. Please see the table below to check for availability.

What if I am unable to travel to campus, but need an article that is only available on microfilm? Whitaker Library will look up that article for a small research fee. Please see our Roanoke Chowan News Herald Research Policy.
