The Marathon County Public Library will be offering improved access to six area newspapers starting June 17th. The Headquarters Library will provide same-day service to electronic editions of the Appleton Post Crescent, Green Bay Press Gazette, Marshfield News-Herald, Stevens Point Journal, Wausau Daily Herald and Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune.
Library customers can access the current day and past issues of those newspapers through a kiosk located in the Magazine Reading Area on the Second Floor of the Headquarters. Customers can also make copies of newspaper articles for ten cents a page.
The Library will maintain its paper copy subscriptions to those newspapers as well. Due to changes in postal delivery schedules, the paper copies may be delayed by two-five days.
In an age where instant access to information is desired, electronic newspapers and magazines are increasingly replacing paper editions. So, drop in to the Marathon County Public Library and and check out your favorite area newspaper...now online.
