How do I access the Newspaper Collection?

Limerick City Library has a large collection of newspapers. These are mainly held on microfilm, though we also have some in original, hardcopy format. Access to the microfilm readers is free and open to all. Extracts can either be printed or scanned to pc. There is a 10c per page fee for printing. If you wish to view the newspaper collection please book in advance to ensure you get access to a microfilm reader.

I have never used a Microfilm Reader before, will someone be able to show me how it works?

Staff will be available to assist those who are unfamiliar with operating these machines.

How much does it cost to print from the microfilm reader?

10c. per page (no charge for scanning to pc).
