The Genealogy Center, like all agencies of the Allen County Public Library, will be closed Thursday July 4th, in honor of Independence Day, and all of the heroes who contributed to the American cause. Take a few minutes on Thursday, between picnics and barbecues, baseball and racing to ponder how different our lives would be if our fledgling country had remained a British Colony. When you watch the fireworks, remember that they represent "the rockets red glare" of battle.

We will be open our regular hours of 9A-9P on Wednesday, July 3rd, and 9A-6P on Friday, July 5th.
