Obituary and Newspaper Article Requests

Requests for copies of newspaper articles and obituaries from the Coeur d’Alene Press must be specific (i.e. please send me a copy of pages A11-A12, February 16, 1992). Unfortunately, our level of staffing does not allow us to provide more extensive research.   We do not have an obituary index for the Coeur d’Alene Press so the following information should be included with your request: name of the person at the time of their death and date of death (at least a month and year).  The charge for photocopies mailed or digital copies emailed is $5.00.  Requests should be mailed to:

Coeur d’Alene Public Library
Attn: Barbara Brambila
702 E. Front Ave
Coeur d’Alene, ID 83815
Or click here to e-mail the Outreach Services Coordinator.
(Include contact information with your request.)
