Jasper Library Microfilm Collection

The library has a collection of both microfiche and microfilm. The local newspaper under all its various names is available going back as far as 1858. There is also a complete collection of the George Wilson notes, an indexed series of twenty-three volumes that cover an in-depth history of Dubois County.

The Jasper Public Library is an LDS Family History Library affiliate. Jasper Library patrons have access, on a loan basis, for a nominal shipping and handling fee, to all microfilmed records listed in the FamilySearch catalog at https://familysearch.org/catalog-search. The standard loan period is 90 days, with 60 day extensions available. To obtain a microfilm each library patron creates a personal account with the LDS Family History Library, designates the Jasper Library as the film recipient, searches the on-line catalog for the appropriate film, then places an order for the film. Payment is made directly to the LDS Family History Library at the time the order is placed. The patron is notified by the LDS Family History Library when the microfilm is received at the Jasper Library and is available for use. The Jasper Library has many LDS films on extended loan for patrons to use free of charge. For a complete list of these, please view the PDF files which are detailed below.
