Nashua’s French newspaper available on library website

DISCLAIMER: this post is older than one year and may not be up to date.

Did you know that Nashua at one time had a French language newspaper?

Serving the large number of immigrants from Quebec who settled in Nashua in the late 1800s and early 1900s, L’Impartial was published weekly from 1898 to 1964.

The library has previously offered this newspaper on microfilm. It was recently sent to Advantage Records Management in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to be digitized, and is accessible online through the library’s website.

Historic issues of Telegraph

Also available through the same platform are historic issues of the Nashua Telegraph from 1901-1952 and the Nashua Daily Telegraph from 1869-1904.

All of these newspapers can be browsed by date or searched by keyword. You can find them at

This preservation project was funded by the Stearns Trust.
