Local History Room

One of the unique things about our library is that we have a separate local history collection. We have local histories, cemetery indexes, family histories, cookbooks and directories. Last year we added a new ST Viewscan microfilm machine. This machine views newspapers exactly as they appeared at publication. You can print it, email it or even save it to a flash drive. Our local history website includes an index of birth, marriages and death notices from area newspapers. Also on our website you can view hundreds of historical photographs. If your ancestors were not from this area, the library still provides a wealth of information through its subscription to, which is available from any computer here at the library. Heritage can be accessed from our website outside the library. Both sites contain state and federal records and much more.
