Today's Singing River Library
In 2016, Amanda Brooks became the first Archivist and Manager for the department. Policies and procedures as well as a digitization program were implemented. On March 28th, 2017 the department was granted library status and given a new name: Singing River Genealogy and Local History Library.
With a collection of over 10,000 books, about 200 boxes of original material, over 4,000 Family and Local History Vertical Files, about 3,000 photographs, and a growing digital archive, the road from three shelves of books has been well worth the trip.
