The library offers in-person assistance for genealogy research as well as multiple online resources. Our historic top floor is home to our local history room with multiple town histories and local information, as well as newspapers on microfilm. Our History Gallery also houses our print collection of genealogy guides, as well as our North American history books (Dewey number: 970s).
Additionally, many of our top floor Library Watch volunteers have extensive genealogy experience and are happy to help you get started researching your family tree. To make a genealogy appointment, please call the library.
