Congratulations Withee Public Library on a successful Open House held December 3, 2016, and unveiling of a long awaited digital newspaper database. That database includes 103 years of searchable Withee area newspapers from 1902 to 2005: the Withee Sentinel, Withee Journal, Clark County Journal, Owen Enterprise and the O-W Enterprise. The project has been in the works for years, under the tireless leadership of Louise Olszewski, with generous support from the Withee Public Library Board of Trustees and assistance of the staff of the Withee Public Library. The Library is one of the finest small town public libraries in the State of Wisconsin and beyond. Thank you all who support the Library, and congratulations to all involved in making such an excellent resource available. Special thanks to Karen (my sister) for a personal visit to the open house on my behalf, and for sharing photo's of the exciting day. The library and it's staff do much with limited resources. If you are able to provide a small contribution or in kind support, please do so. It would benefit many. If you are in the area of Withee, stop by the Library to say hi and check out their collections. There is something for all ages
