Gates-Chili Newspaper Archive Now Online

Newspaper Post

Nearly fifty years of Gates-Chili newspapers, including the Gates-Chili News, are now available for online reading thanks to a grant awarded to the Gates Public Library.  The digitized newspapers cover the period 1947-1992, with 1993-2000 coming soon.  The papers are keyword searchable and chronicle a period of great change and growth in the towns.

To access the newspapers, visit the library’s new Local History webpage at

The Library thanks Rochester Regional Library Council for funding this project, Gannett for granting permission, and Rochester Public Library for providing some of the source material.  Additional thanks to Town of Gates Supervisor Cosmo Giunta, Town of Gates Historian Bill Gillette, Gates Historical Society Secretary Sue Swanton, and Chili Public Library Director Jeff Baker for providing letters of support.
