We are a non-circulatory library, meaning visitors can utilise the books on the shelves, but they cannot be checked out and they cannot leave the building. The resources in our library are available to all visitors during open hours free of charge. A Genealogy Centre volunteer is available to assist with library resources on Wednesdays from 10 am to 3 pm or by appointment. Browse our featured books and resource categories below.

Featured Books
