New Arrivals


This is a list of new books recently added to the genealogy collection at the Santa Clara Public Library.

New books are first displayed on the shelves facing the computers next to the Heritage Pavilion. After a month or two, the books are moved to the open shelves at the appropriate number. If the book you are looking for is not on the New Book Shelf, check the return cart, the open shelves, and the catalog to see if it is checked out.

The same list is published in the Newsletter. Older lists can be found from the Newsletter page in the Members Area.
