We just started a subscription to America's Newsbank, a service that will provide library patrons with access to current and archived issues of the Maynard Beacon-Villager from August 2005 to the most recent issue published.
America's News allows you to easily search or browse news articles, editorials, birth/marriage announcements, obituaries, and special sections. Just about everything you see in the Beacon-Villager goes into this database.
Interested in reading past articles and editorials on the 129 Parker St. location? Do a search for it and you'll get 174 relevant results. The library alone has almost 1,400 results but you can narrow down your search by adding other keywords or by selecting a date range for the results to fall into. We're very excited about this resource for all kinds of purposes and hope you take the chance to try it out as well.
You can try America's Newsbank by clicking here or find it later at www.maynardpubliclibrary.org/databases. Remote access from home is limited to Maynard residents only. For more information, contact the Reference Desk at 978-897-1010 x103 or firstname.lastname@example.org
