In addition, the branch libraries have small collections of historical and genealogical materials that are related to their geographical location. Please call each branch for more specific information about their holdings.
Business and manufacturing guides and directories suited to the needs of jobseekers, investors, entrepreneurs, small businesspeople, students, and other interested parties are available for use in each of the libraries, though the most extensive collection of materials is found at the May Memorial Library.
