Butte County Library has microfilm reader-printers at the Chico, Oroville and Paradise branch libraries. The Gridley branch has a microfilm reader but no print capability. Each branch also has local newspapers on microfilm available for the public to view. If you have your own microfiche or microfilm to view, you may bring it in to view on a library reader.
If you are unable to come into a branch and are looking for an obituary in a local newspaper, please fill out our Obituary Request form.
