* Old reference books and histories no longer kept by modern
libraries, such as encyclopedia from early 1900, 1800s dictionaries
and Bibles, much more..
* World War II - John Tombaugh's collection of 700 books, and his

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
