NEWS FROM THE ROOM – 07/02/2021
We are finally open for business, you are welcome to come and do research again. If you have not received your shots the Library does require you ware mask in the Genealogy room.

We received a lot items from the Mexico Ledger, when they moved to their new building, these are on permanent loan for now. They include all Ledger microfilm from the mid 1800’s to 2017, this will improve research on Obits and other Articles, old pictures taken by Ledger reporters, and a lot of books. Some of the items will be put in the Genealogy room, some in the Library and some put in storage.

We are going to start having the regular monthly meetings the 19th of September at 1:30 pm in the Mexico Library. As of now we do not have any programs or speakers scheduled for the meeting. If you know of someone that might like to give a program please let us know at Please wear a mask and social distancing
