library

We maintain a library for the membership and for the public at the 1884 Warwick County Courthouse. The majority of the collections have been donated by members and others. Our facility is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and Saturdays, 10:00 AM- 4:00 PM. The library is closed during heavy storms, hurricanes, snow and ice. Please call before visiting during these times.

Our Library Staff are volunteers. The Librarian, Merle Kimball, was a local and family history librarian at the Earl Gregg Swem Library at the College of William and Mary.  Most of the volunteers have extensive expertise in family history research.
