Paper index lost to history

The Obituary Card Index has been removed from the Butler Area Public Library. I was told it wasn't needed, as the records are online.

I have used this index many times. I went to the library with the names I needed to look up, looked at the microfilm and was done. I needed no electronic device.

This index of thousands of names was there for many decades. The sad part is that it was a part of the history of the library and now that history is gone.
