The Local History and Genealogy department collects a wide variety of periodicals which cover both our immediate region in Lucas County as well as genealogical publications from around the country to aid your research. Some of these materials can be found in the library catalog, but not all of them. To aid in discovering what resources we have available for your use, we have collected the entire collection of periodicals in a spreadsheet.
