I have been doing online research of my ancestors and needed information regarding the more recent, locally focused ancestors. I recalled my Mother telling me of her visits to Willard Library -- so I scheduled a visit there when I and my cousin had free time.
I found a lot of what I was looking for, though a trip to court house records in other counties is next.
Not only does the library have a lot of materials in book form but also in other forms for the researcher to access.
The library is handicapped accessible -- park on the North side of the building, use the down ramp, and inside is an elevator to access the upper floors!
This is a beautiful, historic building that lends the atmosphere of times gone by that seems so appropriate when researching local history of family members who lived in the Southwest Indiana area during the time the library was built!
Love working on my geneology in this library -- and the staff were very helpful!
Here is a wonderful site to learn more about this library, the expansion project, the online services, etc.
