Local History and Genealogy Collection
We have a small local history collection in our Meeting Room. These items do not check out, but you're welcome to peruse them in the library. If you are traveling in from out of town, please feel free to call the library and inquire if the items you are wanting exist in our collection, or that the room/collection is available. If needed, appointments can be made to reserve the room for research.
