Materials in the Local History Room are available for use by appointment only. Visitors should make a request for research time at least 3 business days in advance. Access is available Monday through Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Visits at other times during library open hours may be possible, but the library can not guarantee that these materials will be accessible during all library hours.
A valid Photo ID (driver’s license, state ID, passport) is necessary to request use of these materials. A copy of ID will be made by staff.
Visitors must be 10 years or older, and each minor must be accompanied by an adult.
Materials may be used only under supervision of library staff. Researchers are allowed to examine one item at a time. Some materials may require special handling only by staff members. Photographs and photocopies may be allowed under the supervision of library staff.
Due to staffing constraints, each visitor is allowed four hours per month of supervised use unless special arrangements have been made in advance.
Please call or email to arrange a research appointment.
