Olathe Criterion Now Online!

The Olathe Criterion, originally titled the Western Slope Criterion, is now available online through the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection.  Thanks to a grant earlier this year and the support of the Olathe community, the Montrose Library was able to begin digitizing this important local resource.  So far the online access is limited to the years 1905-1917, which equals 653 issues.  The Library is committed to allocating funds each year to continue the project, steadily expanding the collection.

The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection can be found at www.coloradohistoricnewspapers.org.  Access is free.  For more information or to schedule a demonstration with a librarian, contact the Adult Services department at 249-9656 ext. 3.
