Newspapers for Wythe County and some surrounding areas are available both in original paper and digital form. Highlights of the collection include Wytheville Dispatch from October 1862 to March 1865, a complete run of the Southwest Virginia Enterprise from April 1870 to 1881 and 1937 to the present day.

Certain individual and bound issues of newspapers may not be photocopied nor scanned due to their fragile condition. However, researchers may use digital cameras upon approval by staff.

The Library of Virginia has microfilmed much of the collection including issues of the Wytheville Dispatch, Southwest Virginia Enterprise, and other scattered papers.
