Happy Archives Month
Posted By:  Cari Hillman
Monday, October 2, 2017

October is Archives Month and the theme for Ohio is “A War to End All Wars - Ohio in the First World War, 1917-1918. The MidPointe Library System will be recognizing Archives Month with special #ThrowbackThursday posts from October through November. We will take a look into the past and check in on the boys of the Armco Ambulance Corps, seeing what they were up to 100 years ago in their own words.

We’d also like to announce that www.MidPointeDigitalArchives.org will be receiving a new look! Along with a new look and better functionality, the MidPointe Digital Archives will be mobile and tablet friendly. For those that don’t know the MidPointe Digital Archives is home to 17 collections and over 15,000 historic items including photographs, letters, yearbooks, atlases, and more. We are continuously adding new collections and items, so keep an eye out.

Finally, check out the MidPointe Library System’s physical collections by visiting the Ohio Room or the new Local History and Genealogy Gallery and Rotating Exhibit area. Available from within the Ohio Room are original yearbooks, city directories, rare and unique books, and the Local History Vertical File, which contains material unique material on a variety of local history subjects. From the Local History and Genealogy Gallery and Rotating Exhibit area you can now find circulating copies of genealogy and local history resources previously unavailable.

Looking for something and can’t find it? Just ask us and we will help you search! Many of our items haven’t been put online yet or may be hidden away.
