If the death occurred during the years 1927 through January 2008 (excluding the years for which no microfilm is available), a search may be performed using our online Obituary Index.
The requester of an obituary notice must provide the reference staff with the subject’s name. Include the subject’s full name (if the subject is female, please include her first name, i.e. Mrs. Jane Doe, not Mrs. John Doe). Include your name, a contact phone number, and your mailing address. Please allow one week’s searching time per subject.
Obituary requests are researched free of charge, and one hard copy of the obituary will be made for you free of charge. However, in order to send a hard copy of the obituary to you via postal mail, we ask that you provide us with a self-addressed, stamped envelope, mailed to the Reference Department at the following address:
Naples Daily News Obituary Index

SWFLN Member Libraries
As a member of the Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN), the Collier County Public Library extends reciprocal borrowing privileges to our patrons. Reciprocal borrowing means that our patrons can borrow from selected libraries without being cardholders of those libraries. See the list of member libraries. Ask at any branch.
SWFLN’s mission is to encourage interlibrary cooperation, to facilitate resource sharing and to provide opportunities for professional growth among all types of libraries and library staff. In support of that mission, SWFLN libraries have established this reciprocal borrowing project, an interlibrary loan and delivery system, and a strong program of library technology training.
