The library holds the Wilmington Star News and other historic newspapers for the area on microfilm as well as the digital collections. Visitors may use the microfilm readers to view and print articles or save to pdf and email to yourself electronically. If you are unable to visit, please call or email the North Carolina Room for copy costs and postage, our staff or volunteers will look up an article and send it to you. Please be very specific with your request.

If you don't know the date of your article, there are several options to find it:

  • You may search through the online newspaper databases
  • You might be able to find it by searching through the Library's subscription to Newsbank
  • You can come in and browse through the issues on microfilm
