As part of our efforts to update our use of the different spaces in the Library, we have moved the Genealogy & Local History collections to a new (or old, depending on how you look at it) space in the original 1904 building. The collections are now located in the room behind the Periodicals & Newspapers Room (the door on the right as you come up the stairs from the lobby). The room has a fresh coat of paint and staff from the Bowdoin Museums were kind enough to re-hang our maritime art after the painting was completed. We’ve added some stools to utilize the counter at the Pleasant Street windows as well, for extra seating.
The Times Record microfilms are still located up on the 2nd floor, so stop by the Help Desk if you need to use the film reader. Films for 1850 through 1979 are now digitized and available here: http://curtis.advantage-preservation.com/
