Looking for a Local Library Lock-In?

We added several Library Genealogy Lock-Ins this past weekend!  You can always easily check upcoming genealogy events specific to your location page (Narrow down to your state under the LOCATIONS tab) or from the CALENDAR page, just type in a keyword, like  lock-in , in the Search box at the top left of the Calendar, and Voila! All of the upcoming lock-ins will show up.


I like to switch to the Agenda or Pinboard view (Options are on the top right of the calendar) to see results like these!  Try it out, and let us know if we’ve missed any that you know of!

Here are just a few flyers for some upcoming Library Lock-Ins:
