The Almeda and Emery Eickoff Library houses records of birth, marriage, death as well as an extensive obituary collection. Print resources such as local histories, genealogies and maps are also available.
Patrons looking to visit the library must schedule an appointment. Staff provides orientation to the library and its collection as well as the use of computers, copiers, and microform equipment. Due to staffing and time constraints, the primary focus of staff is to serve as patron advisor, answering ready reference questions, assisting in locating materials, and moderating the operation of equipment. Staff assists patrons in accessing and interpreting library information but does not conduct research for patrons or compile family histories.
