The Genealogy and Local History Department can trace our ancestry back to 1953 when the Wooster-Wayne Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) indicated an interest in housing family histories and other resources of genealogical value in the Wooster Library. We started with one book case and have grown to more than 5,800 books and 3,601 reels of microfilm.

 

Our department is located on the upper level of the Main Library located at 220 W. Liberty St. in Wooster, Ohio 44691, near the elevator.  We have new hours, effective March 22, 2010 - May 29, 2010.  Additional hours may be added June 1, 2010.  The current hours are as follows:

 

Monday and Tuesday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
