Acquire Primary Resources On Microfilm Phase 5
Statewide Historic and Cultural Grants. $5,250,000 the first year and $5,250,000 the second year are for history programs and projects operated or conducted by or through local, county, regional, or other historical or cultural organizations; or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources.
In our Long Range Plan, drafted in 2008, one of our objectives was "to expand our historical resources and services for the community". With this grant we have met that goal by expanding our microfilm collection to include the newspapers of southern Renville county, as well as by adding diverse genealogical records to our collection including census records, citizenship records, alien registration records, the Farm, Crop and Labor Reports, and the Dakota War Narratives.
Our submitted pictures includes the latest page of our log book in our genealogy room. Our most recent visitors have come from Texas and the Netherlands to do research in our library.
