224. Update on IMCPL Special Collections

    My Post 214 featured the Special Collections Room at the Main Library. I received the following message that some of you might be interested in:

"We do have some materials that are good for genealogy, but it is limited to Marion County. The Indianapolis Room really houses more of the rare and important items and collections that have been given to the library since its beginnings in 1873. We have a large collections of Indianapolis authors such as Vonnegut and Riley -- most are signed -- as well as rare items like the 1632 Shakespeare Folio.

We do take people into the room for tours, so if you are interested you can contact me -- Chris Marshall -- at cmarshall@indypl.org. We enjoy giving tours because it gives us the chance to show off our great materials."

OK, folks. Contact Chris and schedule yourself or your group to see what's what .
