Beginning Sept. 12, the Genealogical Research Services section of the State Library’s Government and Heritage Library will be closed on Mondays. New service hours for Genealogical Research Services will be Tuesday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Many travelers come from across North Carolina and the nation to find family history information here,” said Maryanne Friend, Assistant Secretary for Development, Marketing, and Communication. “Keeping Saturday as part of the schedule recognizes this and offers opportunities to people who are at work on weekdays to have access.”
The reduction in service hours is the result of budget restrictions; however, the Library remains committed to serving the needs of genealogy researchers.
