What are some significant differences between the library branches and the History Center?

Answer

There are a few main differences between the History Center and our sister library branches in the county library system.

One of the most important differences is that the History Center collections, including the reference section, are non-circulating. This means that books, archival material, photographs, maps, etc., cannot be checked out and used off premises. The reason for this is to protect our delicate and original material from temperature and humidity fluctuations that may damage materials. 

Our research room is primarily for patrons to use when conducting research, including the computers. No food, beverage, large back-packs, or pens (along with several other materials) are allowed in this room.

Many of our materials are stored in secure staff-only areas and in off-site collection storage. In most cases, you will request the materials you want to see and a staff member will bring them to you.
