Members of the Collections Committee are hard at work cataloging the WCHAS library. Over the years, the society has amassed a collection of books, atlases, directories, and other published works that will soon be available for researchers to use. We have an assortment historical novels on various topics, but our largest collection is of local histories and state histories. We also have a large collection of Morgan Company publications on product lines and company happenings.
Volunteers are welcome to join the committee to help with cataloging work. Once the library is complete we will make the list of books available online, and then the committee will begin work on cataloging the archival material that the society has in its archival storage area (photos, documents, maps, Morgan Company records, etc). Contact us today if you are interested in volunteering!
