Local FHC has new director!

The Poplar Bluff Family History Center has a new director and frequent patrons of the library already know her.  It's our very own Circulation Librarian, Erin Rigby.  Once she's settled in, I'll pass along contact information, hours of operation, and collection information.  (Maybe she could even write a guest blog on here with all that information!)

So what exactly is a Family History Center? 
Family History Centers are branch facilities of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Centers provide access to most of the microfilms and microfiche in the Family History Library to help patrons identify their ancestors.

If you're interested in borrowing microfilm or microfiche, the following information was just released yesterday by the Family History Library regarding prices for borrowing:
Due to the increase in the price of raw microfilm stock and the decreasing availability of this product on the market, it has become necessary for FamilySearch to increase the price of film loans in family history centers. As of 15 February 2012 the following prices will be in effect for film loans in the United States and Canada:           
  • Short-term Film Loan - $7.50
  • Short-term Film Loan Extension - $7.50
  • Extended Film Loan - $18.75
  • Microfiche Loan - $4.75
