Research Trip Notes : Allen County Public Library


Last Sunday, I managed to get away to the Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne, Indiana to do some research.  The library has hours from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, and with parking in the garage only $ 1.00 per hour, I need to take advantage of the opportunity when I can.  

The library now has a photocopy card that it uses as cash, you can reload the card with any denomination.  No more lugging around quarters, nickels and dimes.  

I managed to snag a few photocopies from some of the printed material, which I need to digest and update in my research logs.
