Where to find Brunswick newspaper microfilm

Microfilm of the Brunswick Telegraph, the Brunswick Record, and the Times Record is available for you to use at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick.

Microfilms are located in the Genealogy Room on the second floor of the Library.

Staff at the Reference Desk can help you find film and load it on the microfilm reader-printer.

Prints are 10 cents each.

Copies from the microfilm are not of high quality.  Text is generally readable but pictures usually turn out as gray blurs.

If you’re not planning to visit Brunswick, the staff of the Curtis Memorial Library will make copies of articles from the newspaper microfilm and mail the copies to you. For this service we charge $15.

Contact us at the Reference Desk 725-5242 extension 510 or email us at  refdesk@curtislibrary.com and provide your postal mailing address as well as information about the article you want.

Bowdoin College Library also has a set of these microfilm.  They do not make copies for patrons, but do have several reader/printers and the public may use them in their library.
