BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn Public Library has unveiled a digitized archive of the historic Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper.

The newspaper was in circulation from 1841 to 1955 and at one point was the most widely read newspaper in the country.

The archive is free through the library's website. Before the archive was launched, people wanting to look at old issues would have to use microfilm or read the original print editions at the Brooklyn Collection inside the library.

Librarian Ivy Marvel says the website Newspapers.com digitized the library's collection of the Daily Eagle.
