The microfilm cabinet is located in front of the information desk in the east side of the building. The digital microfilm reader/printer is located on the other side of the information desk next to the Online Catalog Computers.
A second microfilm reader is located next to the microfilm cabinet but it does not print.
Computers with Internet are available for public use, but they are not in the genealogy area.
You may bring laptop computers, however the library has very few electrical outlets available for use, so plan accordingly.
Scanners and cameras may not be used on any copyrighted materials. Use of scanners or cameras on un copyrighted material will be limited and only with the permission of the genealogy librarian.
So as not to disturb other patrons, please do not make or answer calls on cell phones in the library. You may make or answer calls in either the upstairs or downstairs lobby of the library.
Circulation of Materials
Materials in the genealogy collection do not circulate. However, the library has copies of a few items in the non-fiction circulating collection as well. All books and magazines in the genealogy collection are included in the on-line catalog. Check there to see if a second copy is in the non-fiction circulation collection.
The library is always happy to receive donations to our genealogy collection. Donations of materials on Wabash County are particularly desirable, of course. However, if we feel that a donation would find a better home elsewhere, the library may give it away or sell it.
