Library

The mission of the Butte County Library is to serve the Learning, Cultural, and Community needs of the diverse populations of our County.
Microfilm & Local Newspapers
  • The Library subscribes to the Chico Enterprise‐Record, Oroville Mercury‐Register,  Paradise Post,  Gridley Herald, and  Chico News & Review. Print copies of newspapers are kept for 6 months, after which they can be viewed on microfilm. 
  • Microfilm reader-printers are available in the Chico, Oroville and Paradise branches. The Gridley branch has a microfilm reader but no print capability. 
  • The Library also maintains microfilm collections of historic Butte County Newspapers back to 1854.
  • Unable to come into a branch? Fill out our Obituary/Newspaper Article Request form. (PDF version of this form is also available for download if you prefer to mail it in.)
  • If you have your own microfiche or microfilm to view, you may bring it in to view on a library reader.
