Newspapers on Microfilm
Obituary and newspaper request services will be temporarily unavailable in the Vallejo area beginning March 16, 2013 due to the John F. Kennedy Library remodel.
The Library maintains microfilm copies of local newspapers for Fairfield, Vallejo and Vacaville dating back to the late 1800’s. Each town’s newspapers are available for viewing and photocopying at the larger library branch in that town.
If you live outside Solano County, please submit the following form for photocopy requests. A specific date for the event is required. We will search up to two weeks following the date for related newspaper articles. It can take several weeks to search the files and copy articles. Photocopies will be mailed. The quality of the copy depends on the clarity of the microfilm copy. Faxes of microfilm photocopies are seldom of satisfactory readable quality.
