Reminder: As we printed in the last News 'n Notes, librarian Marie Concannon will present a talk on "Researching Your Ancestors in Federal Depository Library Collections" this Saturday, 22 June, at 10:30 a.m. in the Lee Auditorium at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. Marie will give strategies for researchers who would like to search Federal Depository Library Program collections for clues about ancestors. She will also speak about state government publications for genealogical research. This talk is free and you do not need to pre-register.
Also, this week, officials in St. Louis announced that beginning on 1 July 2013, meter parking in downtown St. Louis will be enforced on Saturdays. Many of us have enjoyed parking for free on Saturdays to research in our beautiful downtown branch of the St. Louis Public Library, but this perk is ending. There is a small library parking lot just a block or so away that patrons are welcome to use. If there is space in the lot, you can ask at the information desk when you leave the library for a parking token. Otherwise, there is plenty of metered street parking and several other lots nearby, but they will charge a fee.
