Alexandria Times-Tribune being digitized

Found out that the local newspaper in Alexandria, Indiana where my maternal relatives lived, worked and died is currently unavailable for viewing at the public library, but for a good reason.  From their website :

The Alexandria Times-Tribune microfilm is being digitized and is no longer available to the public. Once the digitization project is completed, users will be able to access content covering March 1, 1905-June 2013 from any workstation within the library. We anticipate the project to be completed by December 2014.
I'm looking forward to being able to access and search the images, always so much easier to find the tidbits and obituaries, by searching rather than scrolling page by page through the microfilm.
