Wise Words

  • In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
    Alex Haley, Roots

  • There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings.
    Hodding S. Carter

  • Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards.
    Unknown

  • He who has no fools, knaves, or beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.
    English Proverb

  • We are the children of many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn ... betrays its ancestor.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
    Mark Twain

  • We've uncovered some embarrassing ancestors in the not-too-distant past. Some horse thieves, and some people killed on Saturday nights. One of my relatives, unfortunately, was even in the newspaper business.
    Jimmy Carter
    Former U.S. President

During the months of inclement weather, you are encouraged to call ahead to verify the library will be open. Road conditions and illness may contribute to the library closing at unscheduled times.

If you are interested in visiting the library at another time, please send an e-mail to Kelly and we will be happy to discuss other times which may be available to accommodate your schedule.

PLEASE NOTE: The library is closed for the months of January and February. However, we are more than happy to assist researchers who may be visiting from out of town during these months. Please contact us to make arrangements.

If you are planning a visit to St. Joseph for research purposes, please be sure to check the St. Joseph Public Library and Courthouse hours in order to make the most of your visit. Both of these facilities are a short distance from the library. Also, please note the State of Missouri observes Truman Day the second Friday of May! Many services/offices are not open so please plan accordingly.
