The Perry County Newspaper and Yearbook Digital Archive

The new “Perry County Newspaper & Yearbook Digital Archive” is live and available for everyone, anywhere to use. Consisting of as many Perry County newspapers and yearbooks from the late 1800s to 1977 (for newspapers) and 2015 (for yearbooks) as possible, these resources are now keyword searchable so information that took months to find now takes minutes. Search, crop, download, create PDFs, JPGs; the options are endless. To access this new resource, CLICK HERE.

This database and project was made possible through grants and gifts from the “Friends of the Perry County Public Library”, The Perry County Community Foundation, and the Tell City Historical Society.

This is only the beginning and we’ll be adding more documents, records, and other relevant items in the coming months and years.
