NEW HOURS FOR LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTION
Starting in October 2016, the Local History Coordinator, Linda Tantillo, will be at the library from 11 am to 5 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays only.
We have a large selection of local history books in the Local History Reference area that are available for public use whenever the library is open. We also have some local history books in our circulating collection. In addition, we have created compilations of information on many local topics. These items are unique and available by request only. Other library staff members will be able to get these materials for you and give some general help, but don’t have time to do research.
Please download form below, scan after filled and send back by return email or mail or bring into the library.
