Where Making History Is a Struggle


Visiting the Library


General hours of operation for the public are Wednesday - Saturday 11:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Closed: Sundays and Mondays. Due to outside events and staff work we are not always able to be open during scheduled hours, and recommend always setting an appointment before a visit. We appreciate your patience.
