 GHS is now open for scheduled appointments!

While we still encourage you to email research requests, we do understand that there are times when it is more beneficial to be able to do research in the building. Details are:

· Please email to make an appointment and let us know what you are looking for—we’d like to be able to pull information and have it ready for you when you arrive.

· Visits are limited to no more than 2 hours on Wednesdays between 10am and 5pm and Saturdays between 10am and 1pm. We appreciate your ability to be flexible.

· Availability of times is dependent on volunteer availability.

· Masks and social distancing are required.

· Visitors will do their research in the Gathering Room and volunteers will bring all necessary items from the library.

We look forward to seeing your smiling faces again in the near future—even if they are behind a mask!
