OUR RESEARCH LIBRARY
The research library of the Society contains a collection of materials unique to the northeast corner of Lancaster County and not found anywhere else. All library materials excepting new acquisitions are cataloged and all are available to library patrons. Most items can be photocopied, and photographs can be scanned and printed or scanned and saved electronically. For a more complete listing of library resources please refer to our HSCV Services page. The library is available both to members and to non-members of the Society; the $3.00 daily use fee is waived as a benefit of membership.
A Major attraction to the HSCV library is our extensive microfilm collection - 357 rolls of microfilm total. Of that total, there are 126 rolls of back issues of local newpapers, including the Ephrata Review, Shopping News, New Holland Clarion, and Terre Hill Times. Minutes of the Ephrata Borough Council, 1910- 1970, occupy 7 rolls of film. Numerous other local and county records comprise of the remainder of the collection.
