It has an extensive video collection (for rent at lower-than-commercial prices), audio tapes, and books for all ages. The library has the Nanty Glo Journal on microfilm from its beginning in 1921, and staff members will look up, copy, and mail obituaries to persons doing family research for a nominal fee. Such requests will be handled when made in person or by U.S. Mail (not email) only.
INFORMATION ABOUT OLD OBITUARIES
The Nanty Glo Tri-Area Museum and Historical Society researches and sends old obituaries
from the Nanty Glo Journal. This service is NOT AVAILABLE from the Library or from the
Nanty Glo Home Page. For each obituary, send details of the decedent and a check for $4
made out to the NGTAMHS, 929 Roberts Street, Nanty Glo, PA 15943 and INCLUDE
a self-addressed return envelope. No phone numbers, no calls, no emails, PLEASE.
The Nanty Glo Home Page "cyber library" is a gateway to the free public library online. The following sites offer thousands of complete-text books (mostly classics no longer under copyright), free for reading on screen or printing out and reading:
(Over 15,000 titles; additional book links. Click title above to go to page or enter an author (last name first) and/or title at right for shortcut.)
Europa (Links to bookwire, magazines, newspapers)
Online Books (A page of links to various online library catalogs)
The preceding page has a faulty link to Christian Classics. This is the right one: Christian Classics Ethereal Library. This site includes classics from Catholic and Orthodox authors as well as (predominantly) Protestant ones. More information about managed hosting is available here.
There are also millions of books available for purchase with credit card online. Any search engine will readily give you access to those commercial sites; just search for "books."
