Where Making History Is a Struggle


Foundation Center Appointment Request


To ensure that we are able to accommodate you, we ask that anyone interested in using the Foundation Center at the Library make an appointment. Walk-in visits are welcomed, however we cannot guarantee service.

Appointments for research are generally available Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., subject to change. Closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Please submit the form below to request an appointment to use the Foundation Center resources. A staff member will contact you to confirm your appointment and answer any further questions as quickly as possible. See also information about preparing for your visit and Foundation Center resources available at the Library.

Please note that submitting this form does not guarantee an appointment. All requests must be scheduled and confirmed by staff.
