DISCOVER YOUR ROOTS
The following websites are handy tools to have at your disposal when researching your family tree. The Ancestry Library Edition is also available through Marvel. However, this particular database can only be accessed within the library itself.
For local information and records, please consider visiting our Maine Room.
The Maine Room contains many archived and irreplaceable books. In order to safeguard these items, no backpacks, purses or other large bags are allowed inside. Staff cannot supervise personal items, so bags may not be left at the front desk.
To gain entry into the Maine Room, please sign the log sheet located on Rice's circulation desk to receive a key. If you have specific items you are looking for, the staff can retrieve 1-2 books at a time and bring them to the main floor. Please call ahead to request this service at 439-1553 ext#4.
If you live out of town and are unable to come into the library, there is a flat fee of $10 to have materials copied and shipped.
As always, if you need any assistance with your research, we are here to help!
