On Tuesday, May 12, the Farmington Main Library will hold a grand opening celebration of the Farmington Room, the library’s local history and genealogy collection, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Main Library at 6 Monteith Drive. This event is free and open to the public.
The Farmington Room collection includes histories of Farmington and other area towns, as well as genealogies of major Farmington families. The Farmington Libraries have increased usability and public access for these historically significant materials in order to put history at the community’s fingertips. At this event, the public will learn how to take advantage of:
- Public hours
- Access to digitized documents and images from Farmington History
- Genealogy resources like Ancestry.com
- Digitized microfilm of the Farmington Valley Herald, 1894-1986
Attendees will enjoy a demonstration of our digital resources and find out what else is in store for this collection.
This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance for this program by calling the library at 860-673-6791, using the online registration form, or visiting the Information Services Desk.
The Farmington Library is part of the Farmington Village Green and Library Association. If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance.
