FREE WIFI    The Library offers free WiFi throughout the building.  You do not have to be an account holder to access this free service.
MICROFILM REQUESTS    The Library does not carry the Kilgore News Herald microfilm in house.  Because of this, we must charge a $5.00 fee to cover expenses necessary for the pickup and return of the microfilm.  There is also a minimal research fee if we do the research for you.  The fee is $5.00 per obituary or request.   When requesting this service via email, please include as much information as possible along with a statement that you agree to the charges. When requesting an obituary, we must have the date of death +/- 3 days.  Microfilm requests are filled on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
