Micro-Grant Success

The Westminster Public Library, a 2017 Micro-Grant Recipient

Microfilm at the Westminster Public Library

Thanks to the Westminster Public Library, anyone can now view issues of the Westminster Journal from 1947-1964. A recipient of a 2017 Micro-Grant, the Westminster Public Library worked hard to digitize over 850 issues of the journal, beginning with its first, and since the journals launch on December 10th, 2018, the site has received more than 282 page views. The library was excited to partner with Colorado Historic Newspapers, the Colorado State Library, and the Westminster Window Newspaper and was drawn to digitization with the help of the SIPA Micro-Grant because the library aims to provide locally relevant information that cannot be found anywhere else to residents of Colorado and the world.

“The SIPA Micro-Grant was wonderful and the timing for it was excellent because it created a very sustainable project for us to be working on, and continue to work on," said Jackie Kuusinen, the library's Public Services Coordinator. "We are so grateful for the partnership with SIPA to tackle such a meaningful project.”
