Microfilm @ Burlington County Library
Burlington County Library System has an extensive collection of newspapers on microfilm at the Headquarters branch. Branch libraries in Bordentown, Medford and Riverton also have the microfilm of their respective community newspapers.
The newspapers on this list are all available at BCLS Headquarters in Westampton. Titles that are also held by a BCLS branch or member library are noted with a ‡.
Please note that newspapers tend to change titles over the years and therefore some of titles below may be part of the same newspaper over time. For example, the "Mount Holly Herald" changed its title to "Burlington County Herald".
