Local History and Ancestry

The Local History room is also open to the public at all times. The Local History room doubles as our quiet study area and may sometimes be occupied by someone using the space for that purpose. We ask that you please respect their privacy while they use the room and ask a staff member to retireve materials from the room. The room remains unlocked most of the time, however if it is locked you may ask at the front desk for the key.

The local history room is located on the Adult Circulation level in the original 1903 section of the building, opposite the glass wall looking into the computer room.
