It is gratifying to help people find an old picture of their house, or an event they’ve heard about. Researchers, businesses, students and others often are writing a book, article,or paper and need a picture or information for their work. They find it in our collection. Of course, if you just like looking at historical pictures, spending a couple of hours looking through our collections can be a delightful way to pass a couple of hours.
Come take a look at our New York Room collection and lose yourself for a day.
Library Hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; closed Sunday.
