The Saginaw Library is proud to announce that it has begun digitizing its local newspapers. The following are now available online from as early as 1976 to 2009.

  • Northwest Sentinel
  • Sentinel
  • Times Record
  • North County Messenger

NOTE: Users can only access the database in the library via the library's computers or library's wireless internet. Not all years have been digitized. This is an ongoing project.


Thanks to the help of the Saginaw Genealogical Society, the Saginaw Public Library has been able to provide access to Ancestry Library Edition, an online genealogical database. To access this amazing genealogical collection, patrons must use the library's computers or use the Library's wireless internet.
