Where is the Genealogy Collection Now?
All of the books that were in the stacks at the Genealogy Branch library are in the stacks at the downtown branch.
The genealogy collection is on the second floor at the top of the stairs, across from the main desk.
 Local history pages of interest: 
Lots of photographs of old landmarks and stories from page members. 
Be sure to set a timer when you get on these pages or you'll lose track of time!
