Request an Obituary

Often the missing link or the best starting point for many successful genealogy searches, obituaries are mini-narratives of a person’s life, often highlighting major happenings between the birth and death dates. Our staff is skilled in research and can help you find an obituary to help your family's story unfold. Please fill out the obituary request form.

Teacher Materials Request

Our Youth Services Department can pull materials that may be useful to teachers or their students as they study a particular unit in the classroom. Materials checked out are subject to the same lending limits and fines as other library materials. Patrons are limited to 15 items per request. Please fill out the request form if you’d like to have materials pulled for checkout.
