As the times, technology, and formats change, SWCPL will maintain artifacts and historical items to help preserve the past while continuing to adapt and grow in order to best serve the residents of Cleveland and Richland Townships and the towns of South Whitley and Larwill.
In 2012, the library started offering a Family History Lab. This program continues and is for anyone interested in gathering information to build their family tree.
Taira Simmons, a staff member who has worked on her own family history for many years, offers help and guidance in searching online for information during these lab sessions. Staff member Cara Kinney is also available to help anyone with their research.
Other programs are offered throughout the year to help teach specific skills for conducting family history searches. At these programs methods and strategies used to search for information found in public records, online, and in individual obituaries are discussed. Building a family history from this collection of resources is also covered.
Check the calendar of upcoming events to find out more about these fun and informative programs.
