Miscellaneous Microfilm at the Ouachita Parish Public Library

If you paid close attention to yesterday’s newspaper post, I posted the index of our newspaper microfilm cabinets. I purposely left out the most interesting cabinet, cabinet A. That is where the earliest newspaper microfilm is kept, along with other parish newspapers and some interesting film that I didn’t even know we had until I started looking at them! See if there is something there that may interest you and come by to see it!
