NOTE: There is a microfilm viewer and microfilm printer at the library.

NOTE: From my personal experience: 1) There are very little genealogical or historical materials or resources at this library. 2) Regretfully, this library is not very user friendly and they do not like "outsiders" to visit. 3) Lastly, non-residents are not allowed to use library resources, equipment, computers, etc.
