HPLD is working with The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection to begin digitizing the physical copies of The Greeley Tribune. This process will help preserve the oldest and most fragile copies of the newspaper while increasing their accessibility to researchers and readers.

Weld County
Images Collection

A collection of images taken in Weld County, Colorado during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Images in this collection were acquired through individual donations to the City of Greeley Museums. The Weld County Images Collection was a multi-year, joint project of the Greeley Museums and the High Plains Library District. The project was made possible in part by a Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant.


Includes items from local newspapers, business documents and local photographs. This digital collection consists of approximately 100 items. 

The Kersey Local History Collection was a collaborative project between the Kersey Museum, LIS graduate students at the University of Denver, and the High Plains Library District.
