Vision

 

The Louise Timken Library & Archives will be a center for research and learning and as a repository of military history.

Mission

The mission of the Library & Archives is to maintain and preserve institutional records and to collect, preserve, and make available images, literature (manuscripts, logs, & books), and oral histories relating to military history.

Access & Availability

View Online Database ~ Louise Timken Library & Archives

Non-members – Access to the Library & Archives requires a paid admission to the museum. NO check-out of materials available, only in-house research/reading.

Members – Access is included with a membership in good standing AND allows you to check out any books that are not specified as Reference for 2 weeks.  

Currently, availability is limited due to our all-volunteer staff (we are always looking for extra help). The library is typically staffed on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  We strongly encourage to call ahead or email ahead to confirm open times.  NOTE: the Library has a goal in early 2019 to be open during the same hours as the Museum.  

Volunteer Opportunities Available

Current projects – digitizing and transcribing oral histories & completing uploading our archives to the online database

General Library volunteer – check out books to members/be present during open hours
