Conference Room (Upper Level Near Circulation)

Come join us to start researching your family tree. We will make the room and resources available. This will be a time when everyone can gather in one place and research with the assistance of library staff. You can also share with your fellow researchers.  While you can use the resources any time the library is open, this will be a time when you can work undisturbed, and have a staff member handy to help you. Instead of trying for staff attention, someone will be there in the room, available to answer your questions.
