Rice Lake patrons have access to numerous online research databases, all of which are accessible through the MORE website.

Access to the most content: Borrow eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your public library - anywhere, anytime. All you need is a library card.

We’re very excited to offer this indexed archive of digitized microfilm from our local newspaper. Some of the microfilm used in this process was damaged, so please be aware that not all articles are as legible as we may wish.

Find out more about your family tree by searching Ancestry Library (In-Library use only).

Articles from the years 1920 to 2011 are available on microfilm at the Rice Lake Public Library. We hope to continue to digitize this collection for your convenience, but only those years with an expired copyright will be placed on our website.
