The Main Street location of the Davenport Public Library will be closed until December 26th for renovations. That means our Special Collections Center will also be closed.
You will still be able to access all the genealogical and local history information on our website—including our Free Local Database indexes—and our Eastern and Fairmount branches will continue to provide access to all of our online genealogical subscription databases.
This database searches hundred of resources—some formerly only in print—to help you make family connections to the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole nations.
The search engine is easy to use and offers multi-page viewing, unlimited access, and the ability to print, save, or e-mail articles. There’s even a translation feature, offering a choice of 34 languages.
To access Connect : Native Americans or other Gale databases on your mobile device, just download the “Access My Library” app from iTunes or the Google Play Store.
Using the app is as easy as typing in your Davenport library card number!
So when the weather outside is frightful, the Wifi inside is delightful, and the Main library is closed, you can still delve into your genealogy research. How cool is that?
