What's new in the Carnegie Library, Ayr?

For anyone local or visiting Ayr, the Carnegie Library have notified us of changes to their facilities, which include free access to Ancestry Library Edition and FindmyPast.  Since we will not be able to offer Workshop Sessions due to the Church Hall refurbishments, this could be of interest so I've copied their opening paragraphs below:

Who do you think you are?
Explore your family history at the Local and Family History department in Ayr’s Carnegie Library. The department houses a unique collection of books, pamphlets, directories, maps, plans, local newspapers and photographs. Members of the public who wish to conduct their own family history research are welcome to visit the department to use the resources we have available. The most frequently used items are available for readers to browse through and select for themselves, but some of the stock is stored ‘behind the scenes’ and is obtainable on request.

Staff will help identify appropriate sources and give guidance on using the collection. We are happy to help with enquiries anytime, but if you would like to book a ‘Starter Session’ with regards to family history please contact us and we will give you a timeslot and information on what you need to bring along to help get you started with your research.
New for this autumn
The Carnegie Library will be holding a number of Beginner’s Family History Classes this coming winter (dates still to be confirmed). If you would like to embark on this fascinating journey to your family’s past keep an eye on our blog posts for details.
Check-out the links above and plan your visit. For a copy of the full notice we received, contact our secretary using the "Contact" page
