Libraries

Local libraries house vast stores of local knowledge. Many house local genealogies, microfilm of newspapers, books by local authors, newsletters, collections of local lore and papers. Many host local groups of historical importance such as the Mayville Library's Tuesday Club, a member of the National Federation of Woman's Clubs, who formed the library and have been meeting there since 1895. Local librarians are a treasure trove of information for studying local history, use them as a valuable resource.
