New books and material are purchased or donated to our department on a regular basis. Previously, the department librarian would send a list of new material to the newsletter editor of Wayne Ancestors, the newsletter of the Wayne County Genealogical Society. The list would be published in the quarterly newsletter. To reach a wider audience, the list of new material may now be found on the Wayne County, Ohio Online Resource Center.

The books that have arrived in the Department since September 2022 may be found on our New Bookshelves. The books from August 2022 and before may be found on the regular bookshelves.
