On Friday, July 10th, from 10am-noon, the library will offer a free class called "Getting Into Genealogy". This two-hour workshop will provide sufficient information about how to get started in genealogy and family history. The workshop will be presented by Patricia M. Stano-Carpenter, President of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, Inc.
Please register online through the library event calendar, or contact the library (508) 696-4210.
The library is offering the class as part of the EqualAccess Grant Program, funded through the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners with funds from LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act), a Federal source of library funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Library recently used grant funds to purchase the Ancestry Library Edition database, a genealogy database for use by library patrons, and a new collection of genealogy books.
