On the second Thursday of each month, library staff presents a discussion of a genealogy research topic. On the third Thursday, we gather around the fireplace, and each of us gets a chance to share family stories, photos, and projects. We just relax and listen when we don’t have anything to share. We learn from each other and have some laughs too! All Branching Out Classes take place at 10:00 a.m.
Please call 1-800-613-3163 to register for the programs you would like to attend. You can attend as many or as few as you like.
