    This is a Reference Room, not a lending library. All materials must be
    used on the premises. A copying machine is available.

    Today's libraries update their materials and get rid of old books no
    longer used. The Tetzlaff Reference Room will keep old books
    whether they are used by researchers or not. It keeps only books that
    are relevant to Fulton County history and its residents and material
    that refers to life in the Midwest which is like life here in Fulton County.
    These books include transportation, tools, fashion, foods and
    cooking, medical - nearly every aspect of life here in the Midwestern
    USA.
