SLCL Opens Access to Rare Genealogy Material

Press Release

Thursday, July 9, 2015 - 10:00a.m.
St. Louis County Library’s History & Genealogy department will open its staff-only area to the public the third weekend of each month beginning July 18–19. Located on Tier 4 of Library Headquarters at 1640 S. Lindbergh, St. Louis, MO 63131, the staff-only area houses more than 13,000 family histories, school yearbooks, and information about many states west of the Mississippi. Researchers are encouraged to browse and use the materials during the “Explore Tier 4” weekends. History & Genealogy staff will also offer tours on third Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.
 
Usually, items from Tier 4 are available only upon request and are retrieved by a librarian for use in the library. “Explore Tier 4” weekends will allow researchers and genealogists to access this area and browse its holdings independently. Library Headquarters is open from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday; and from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
 
For more information about “Explore Tier 4” or third Saturday tours, call the History & Genealogy Department at 314-994-3300, ext. 2070.
