Clarington Digital Newspaper Collection

Three newspapers from the Clarington area are now digitized and searchable with about 150,000 pages freely available.
Merchant And General Advertiser (Bowmanville, ON) is available from 1871 - 1876.
Orono Weekly Times is available from 1937 to 2012
Canadian Statesman was published Bowmanville and is available from 1868 to 2006.

The Clarington Digital Newspaper Collection is a collaborative project between the Clarington Public Library and the Clarington Museums and Archives.
Why is it that Clarington, with a population of 85,000 can do this while much larger communities, ten times the size, lag?
