Resources for studying local history and genealogy can be found in the "Special Collections" room at both the Wynne and Augusta branch libraries. 


Both the Wynne and Augusta libraries house an extensive digitized microfilm collection of Cross and Woodruff County newspapers, dating back to the early 1900s. The Cross County Library also has microfilm holdings of newspapers from St. Francis County. Both libraries may have microfilm of area census records and other local records.
