Family History

Ancestry and genealogical research have become popular hobbies, and much of the investigative work can be done safely from home. If you are considering delving into your family’s past, here are a few links to whet your appetite.

The State Library’s genealogy area has a dedicated Librarian and a range of resources to help you get started.

Ancestry from a DNA/health perspective.

Ancestry now contains 27 billion records and
100 million family trees.

Do you have Nordic roots? The Nordic Center in America and The American-Scandinavian Foundation offer cultural events, language courses and children’s activities.

Library Update

We’ve been back since June 22: it’s been great to see so many of you make use of our curbside – or ‘porch-side’ rather – pickup service. Our doors are open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays now too, so you can choose between porch-side pick up and entering the Library on these days.

We have been upgrading our infrastructure for better internet access, and you should see a welcome improvement if you use one of the (socially distanced) computers in the Library; or bring your own device with you.

Porch-side Pickup

The curbside pickup initiative is proving very popular. You can order materials by phone or email, and you can pick up Mon/Fri 1PM-6PM, Tue/Thu 10AM-7PM and Sat 10AM-2PM.

Don’t worry if you don’t make it on the day. We’ll bring any uncollected material in at the end of the day, and put it out again at the the beginning of the next period.

Your Feedback

You miss the Library? So do we, but we’re working on it! Here’s what one patron, Richard Micketti, has to say:

“Libraries are so important to all of us; and they are more than books.”

That Richard requested ‘Leadership in Turbulent Times’ speaks volumes.
