Database of the Month
You're probably aware of the great physical resources the Library has to offer, but not everyone is familiar with our growing digital resources. In addition to our expanding eBook library, we have a variety of online databases available through our website.
Each month, we will highlight one of these databases here.
This month, our featured database is Ancestry Library Edition.
Proquest has partnered with MyFamily.com to create Ancestry Library Edition, one of the most important genealogical collections available today. It has unparalleled coverage of the United States and the United Kingdom, including census, vital, church, court, and immigration records, as well as record collections from Canada and other areas. Stop by the library and check out this great resource before attending our genealogy program on the 20th!

Know It Now

Ohio's online reference service is the place where you can get live help from a librarian for finding resources for homework or research on any topic, suggestions for good books to read, or answers to satisfy your general curiosity.
Librarians are available 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year.
