I am seeking obituaries from Sergeant Bluff. Does the library have back
issues of newspapers and a microfilm reader and printer? I've tried to find
their telephone number in directory assistance but haven't located it yet.
The Kingsley library has several rolls of the Kingsley News-Times on
microfilm. They also have a microfilm reader printer. I have taken several
obits from these films.
