We have a few state sections in the Genealogy Center Collection that need tending. Wisconsin, Tennessee, Mississippi, North Carolina, Maryland, and New Jersey are in need of adopting.
Our Adopt-a-State program has been very successful in keeping our state collections of books accessible to researchers. By our volunteers visiting the library at least once a month to be sure their books are on the shelf in the proper order and are properly marked, the collection remains useful. Without that attention, books get mis-shelved and thus essentially "lost."
If you have a bit of time and have an interest in the states mentioned above, let me know )firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll get you started. This effort requires a minimal amount of time, but is critical for the viability of the collection.
