“Sometimes the seemingly most insignificant piece of information about someone can lead to something greater.”
Our local history collection is located on the second floor of the library. Please request admittance to it at the adult reference desk. Our collection is available to browse in this room with the exception of a few items that have been archived and require a special request to view. The room also contains a computer for genealogy database searches and a microfilm reader. Databases available to search only when at the Library are Ancestry and Family Search.

The staff at the library has been working on indexing the obituaries from the Kendall County Record. The following files are the years that have been completed so far.
