The Genealogy Center, like other Allen County Public Library facilities, will be closed on Friday, October 3, 2014 for Staff Development Day. The Allen County Public Library Board is sponsoring the day to inspire and educate the 300+ employees. Classes include a wide variety, such as use of Freegal, and hoopla!, tours of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection and the Maker Lab, a presentation on African American pioneers in Fort Wayne, a class in CPR, a short history of the library itself and much more. Our hardest part, aside from choosing which classes to attend, will be that we will miss our wonderful research customers, but will be back and ready to assist on Saturday, October 4th, at 9 AM.

So please, do not come to visit on Friday October 3rd, but do return on Saturday!
