Newspaper Collections

The Research Library strives to collect St. Augustine and St. Johns County newspapers. Listed below are runs of the various newspapers in our library. Please note that newspapers may have been published weekly or only several times a week. Also the early newspapers may not be complete runs of the newspaper. Early newspapers are not like modern newspapers and they have little local news nor obituaries. The only newspapers in Florida for the colonial period are the East-Florida Gazette in the 1780s and a small press at Fernandina in 1817.
