Newspapers in the Library

Newspapers form a core part of our Nevada collection at the State Library. We have every newspaper published in Nevada, from all counties, many dating back to the 19th century.  There are over 50,000 rolls of microfilmed newspapers, with recent issues available in print. Newspapers form a regional history of the state. They cover a wide range of periods and topics, from mining booms to genealogical history to demographic trends. People searching for obituaries, legislative information, prices of items, photographs of towns and people, small town history, and other information can find it here.

The newspaper collection has current and historical print, microfilm and digitally scanned newspapers for Nevada and selected regional and national newspapers. The Library receives all current Nevada and selected regional and national newspapers in print.
