The Bloomer Public Library’s aging microfilm reader is now a thing of the past. The library has digitized the Bloomer Workman (1881-1886) and the Bloomer Advance (1895-2004). The newspapers can now be accessed from the comfort of your home or the library’s public use computers. Readers can check out this new asset via the Bloomer Public Library’s website https://bloomerpubliclibrary.org/. “The Bloomer Advance was excited to give our permission to the library to have this project completed,” said managing editor Barry Hoff. “We see this as a great help to anyone doing research on relatives or the general history of the Bloomer community and it underscores the importance of local newspapers to the communities they serve.”
