The Local History and Genealogy Department (LHG) of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library (TLCPL) provides online access to its growing collection of local, historic records through TLCPL’s Digital Collections. Please be aware that while browsing the content in Digital Collections you may come across materials that reflect outdated or discriminatory viewpoints that may be difficult or harmful to view. LHG strives to provide a comprehensive collection of local history resources for the purposes of research and education but recognizes that sharing some parts of our region’s history can serve to perpetuate belief systems that fall outside of the Library’s values.
In order to respectfully and responsibly offer LHG materials through TLCPL’s Digital Collections, we are:
- Continually learning and updating our best practices to ensure the Library’s materials are presented and described appropriately
- Actively diversifying the content in Digital Collections to equitably represent the populations and perspectives of the Toledo Lucas County community
- Providing a means for feedback if you encounter materials in Digital Collections that need review
