Contacted Smaller Libraries?

The problem many genealogists have with digital newspapers is that small papers are often not available in digital format. If there is a specific item of interest for which you have a date, have  you considered seeing if a local library in the area where the newspaper was published has the newspapers on microfilm and will search them for you?

They'd need a narrow estimate of a date, but some may respond to these requests via US mail or email. Google the name of the library and see if you can find contact information on their website.
