We love researchers! That’s why we’re here. But we know that visiting the Newberry (or any research facility) can be a bit daunting the first time. Genealogy blogger, Taneya Koonce, described her recent experience in her “Visit to the Newberry Library” post.
As Taneya mentions, preparation is important for a successful visit.So, before you come, check out our website and contact us with any questions you may have. We’re eager to answer them. If you’re going to be in town the first Saturday of the month, we have a free orientation and tour starting at 9:30 am. What if you don’t have time to prepare? Come on in anyway. Just make sure to stop by the genealogy reference desk on the second floor so we can help you get started!
