Web Site of the Month

Historical Houses

Hello and welcome to the local history blog of the New City Library. This is my first blog on our new web page and as introduction; I am Sally Pellegrini overseer of a special collection of local history materials called the Rockland Room. You will see reference to the collection name when searching our catalog or when visiting the library. It is my job to manage more than 4,500 print materials, 15 drawers of vertical files, a large collection of local family names and genealogy, the Budke collection, online genealogy subscription services and maps.
