Program Description

Event Details

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was the largest project among the many programs developed during the New Deal.  For genealogists, the Historical Records Survey offers a multitude of information. This project created many inventories and records which have benefited the entire genealogical research community.  



Special services like sign language interpretation and assistive listening can be provided at events to patrons upon request. Please give at least up to five business days notice to library staff in order to schedule services at events. Call 239-479-4636 or stop by the reference desk at your local library.
