Return To Library CIN Index

November 16, 2000

Welcome to the Newspaper Section of the Independence Township Library's Community Information Network, CIN. Local newspapers are a rich source of historical information, which we would like to include in the CIN. Newspapers known to have covered the Clarkston area include:

  • Community News, 1920's
  • The Clarkston News, 1930-
    (Available on microfilm at the library)
  • Clarkston Reminder,
    (Purchased by the Oakland Press)
  • Clarkston Independence Times, 1979-81
  • Clarkston Eccentric, 1995 --

Unfortunately complete sets of the early newspapers and the Clarkston Independence Times are not known to exist. Your help is needed to locate these newspapers.

Our digitizing project began with the earliest known local newspaper, the Community News. A complete set of the Community News which was published bi-weekly in the 1920's would be a wonderful addition to the CIN. The Library has the following issues:

  • January 29
  • May 5
  • May 21
  • June 4
  • July 2
  • October 22
  • November 5
  • June 17
  • April 6
  • June

If you have any of the missing issues, unknown newspapers earlier than 1920, or the Clarkston Independence Times please consider donating them to the Library or allowing the Library to photocopy them so that they may be digitized and shared with the community.

If you have any questions or comments please e-mail us at or call (248) 625-2212. Thank you.
