Hours Today

 

How often have you told yourself - "I need to look into my family history, but I just don't have the time"?

The friendly, knowledgeable folks in the Genealogy & Local History Dept. are giving you a chance to do just that.  We are offering you the time, space and (most important), the help you need to get started (or continue) your family research. 

Genealogy for Night Owls will be Friday, Oct. 28.  We officially begin at 5:30 and close down at midnight.  Some of our patrons come earlier in the afternoon to get a good head start.  As far as I know, KHCPL-GLHD is the only library in the state with a Night Owls staying open until midnight.

So, what do we do?  We have a catered dinner, door prizes, snacks all evening and lots of fun.  You DO NOT have to be an experienced researcher to do this.  We will have 4 GLHD staff and will walk you through every step.  We have the books, files, databases, and forms to get you addicted.  All you need to bring is the desire and your own family knowledge and stories.  And yes, I did say *addicted*.

Make a reservation in the department by Wednesday, Oct 26 so I can give the caterer a head count.  The cost is $18, payable when you register.  Bring a friend or family member.  Stay as long as you like.  We will be here until midnight and some of the truly addicted walk out with us. 

C'mon.  Join us.  Your ancestors are calling you.

Amy Russell,
GLHD


 

 

 

October is half over, but you still have time to bid on our Silent Auction of duplicate or superseded genealogy and history books. We will take bids until Oct. 31. Come to the lower level of the main Library to view the books.  If you can't come....take a look at the list and submit a bid form.

Happy Shopping 

It was with great sadness that I post this blog.  Our most recent contributor, Marcia Ford, passed away March 12.  We will miss her humor, knowledge and insight.  Stay tuned for more blog entries on genealogical and library topics in the coming days and weeks.
