Griffin Daily News

In 2016, the Flint River Regional Library received funds from the Spalding County SPLOST fund to digitize local newspapers. We are happy to announce the completion of Phase 2 of the Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive project. This phase included the digitization of 16,878 newspaper issues from Spalding County, from 1888-1977. More specifically, patrons now have access to issues of the Griffin Daily News spanning from 1924-1977. *Please note that gaps in this collection’s coverage represent issues that are unavailable due to copyright issues or poor quality print/microfilm.
