Genealogy for Night Owls

It's coming! It's coming!  Our semi-annual Genealogy for Night Owls is scheduled for Friday October 23.  The main library closes at 5:30 and the Night Owls come alive.  We will have a catered dinner (Main Occasions - Amy Black Stier - Chef Extraordinaire), door prizes, snacks, and lots of fun.  Somehow we will manage to fit in some research too.  Cost for the evening is $18.  Come in to the Genealogy & Local History Dept in the lower level of main library to register and pay the fee.  We will be looking for you...the more the merrier!

Annual Silent Auction

It is time for our annual Genealogy & Local History Department Silent Auction.  The books in the auction are either extra copies or a bit outdated.  The auction runs the entire month of October and you are welcome to submit bids via email.  Bid lots of times, you never know who might be bidding for that same book!

Go here for the bid sheet and list of books:

Of course, you are always welcome to pop in to see the friendly staff and peruse the books at your leisure.

The proceeds from this auction go to the Howard County Genealogical Society.  They give back to our department by providing opportunities for training and new books for our shelves.
