About Genealogy & Local History
Beardsley Library's Genealogy & Local History Collection
is housed in two rooms that are named for former presidents of the library's Board of Trustees - Edward Payson Jones and Virginia T. Leighton. The collection focuses on family, town, and state history, and it includes reference, circulating, and digital resources.
A Research Assistant manages the collection, conducts research, and assists patrons. We welcome all patrons, ages 18 and over, and children who are accompanied by an adult,
to make use of our resources!
