Digital Archives of Ruthven Public Library

In 2007, with help from the Palo Alto County Gaming Development Corporation, the Ruthven Public Library had Ruthven's newspapers up to July 2000 digitized from microfilm. The collection is on a website hosted by Heritage Microfilm. The site enables word-searching by using Optical Character Recognition technology. Additionally, browsing by title and issue is equally facilitated. The link will take you to a login page. Then, you may either enter your login information or you may access the site at the library. Again in 2012, with another grant from the PACGDC, the library had digitized newspapers from July 2000- December 2011. They are hosted on a site by the Advantage companies.
