Watt Library Newspapers on microfilm

Please note that this material is now available at Greenock Central Library, Wallace Place, Greenock.

Inverclyde Libraries hold several local newspapers on microfilm, including the Greenock Telegraph, Gourock Times and Port Glasgow Express. Several of these newspapers were not available in print at the Watt Library and were microfilmed by the British Library as part of the former NEWSPLAN 2000 Project.

They can be viewed on our digital microfilm readers at Greenock Central Library. Please ask at the counter if you need any help with loading and viewing the microfilm reels.
