Mostly from the 1950s-1970s. Browse through the subjects here and then request those folders from the reference desk or the circulation desk.

Valley Newspapers on Microfilm: The library has many historical San Luis Valley newspapers on microfilm, some going as far back as 1900. Using microfilm can be time-consuming, but having the date (even a rough date) of an even can make your search much more efficient. If you haven't used microfilm before, ask a librarian to help you get started. Located on the second floor.
