Franklin County had their share of newspapers back in the day, including the Idaho Enterprise, printed in Oxford from 1879 until 1882. The Enterprise has stood the test of time and continues to be printed today in Malad.

They have digitized the Cache Valley News printed from 1906 to 1907 and the Franklin County Citizen published from 1913 to 1915.

Larsen-Sant library director Laura Wheatley and Assistant Director Teresa Rasmussen discuss on Thursday the advantage to patrons by being able to access Citizen archives from their home computers.

Then there is the Preston News, the Cache Valley Clarion and the Preston Booster, which changed to the Franklin County Citizen in 1942- 43 and in 1961 changed to the Preston Citizen.

The pages of all the publications can be accessed from a home computer. “We have recorded the earliest newspapers we had,” said Wheatley. “They were the first 30 rolls of microfilm. We have more to do.”
