Seward County Microfilm Reels

Sponsor and Preserve a Memory!

Click on the Seward County newspaper of your choice to see the reels waiting to be sponsored for online access. As donations are received sponsors will be recognized by listing the name of the individual, family, group, business or organization that paid for it behind the year. All reels without a name listed behind them are still available to sponsor for digitization for $125.

All reels are in the process of being put online or are already available to view at

In addition to digitizing the newspapers already on microfilm, about 10 years of the Milford Times and 2 years of the Seward County Independent are waiting to be filmed. Also, the Seward Memorial Library hopes to purchase the reels of microfilm not already owned. These additional costs are noted under each appropriate title and are also available for sponsorship. Donations of any size are welcome and appreciated!
