The back-to-school issue of Augusta Family magazine includes a resourceful article on libraries in the Raising Readers feature. Contributor Meredith Flory describes the offerings of curbside pickup, educational programs, computer/internet use and the online library service of Beanstalk. Below, Flory shares her “tag on” exclusive with newsletter subscribers about the library as a tool for researching your family ancestry.

In addition to the historical records and documents the public library system may hold, the Augusta Genealogical Society offers workshops and operates the Adamson Library.
