History of the Heritage Room

The Athens-Clarke County Library Heritage Room opened in 1992 after the Library's move to its current Baxter Street location. Thanks to strong community support, the collection has grown quickly. With the recent SPLOST-funded renovation of the Library from 2010-2012, the Heritage Room has been fortunate to expand considerably in size.

The Heritage Room seeks to serve students of all ages and experience levels in their research into local, regional and state history and genealogy.
