BGS Genealogical Library

The Library has over 2,400 genealogical books and journals for research in nearly all US states and many foreign countries. There are reference and how-to books, family genealogies and lots more.

The Library has WiFi - bring your laptop or other device. Plus there are tables and chairs, where you and a friend can set-up your device(s) and research together. 

 Visiting and researching in the Library is FREE for non-members and members alike.

 BGS members can check out books and study them at home for 3 weeks at a time.

The friendly volunteer librarians will be glad to help you navigate your way around the library. They can also answer questions you may have about BGS, the library and/or genealogical research.
