The Allen County Public Library’s Genealogy Center Adds a new Discovery Center and Oral History Room

Technology has transformed genealogy research, so the famous Allen County Public Library’s Genealogy Center has remodeled some of its space to build on those advances. This Thursday, the Genealogy Center, which is located in the downtown library, will hold a grand opening for its new Discovery Center and new Life Stories Center.

The remodeling work, which began in December, was paid for with a $240,000 grant from the Allen County Public Library Foundation, a fundraising arm of the Fort Wayne library system. No taxpayer money was used.

One Comment

There is a part of me that flinches when I see comments in articles in which we say “no tax payer money was used” . I am in no way saying the comment shouldn’t have been made, but it is unfortunate that is seems to be a requirement in today’s American society. I wish communities would take enough pride in their public services to be saying, we supported this with our tax dollars.
