The Folkestone News
The Folkestone News (which had only a short lifespan) would be a great addition, as our local library has only a couple of years` worth.
Seems a very good idea, I fully support it

The Folkestone News was one of the best titles the town had, and would be a worthy addition. Folkestone Library indeed only have few years of this newspaper and some are in such poor condition that public access is prohibited. The British Library appear to have a complete run from 1876 to 1890, which is listed under two slightly different titles - 'Folkestone News & East Kent Chronicle' for the first 3 issues, changing to 'Folkestone News, East Kent Chronicle, Dover, Hythe, Sandgate, and Shorncliffe Reporter' for the rest of the run.
As a local historian and committee member of the Folkestone & District Local History Society, I would welcome and indeed recommend the addition of this newspaper to your online offering.
The 'Finding Eanswythe' project, of which I am webmaster, would very much like to see some articles from this volume that were off-limits at the local library.
