1980 Microfilm Reader Donated
80 0611 02
June 11, 1980
Lions Club President Bob Sanford and Historical Society President Clayton Stephens represented the two organizations who bought a microfilm reader-printer, valued at $2500, for the county library. The UGA Libraries microfilmed all of the past copies of the Soperton News and the county government bought a set of the films and has continued to sponsor the continuing microfilming. The printer soon became obsolete as digital copiers took their place.
