PAUL HARRIS FELLOWSHIP AWARD FOR MICHELLE POWELL - Let's Make a Difference

 

Virginia Wheeler Martin Family History & Learning Center - Host Tina Sabol

Now open at Medina Library

Medina Library’s Reference Department received a complete makeover beginning in April 2019 thanks to a $2.5 million donation from the namesake and former Medina resident, Virginia Wheeler Martin (1928-2016). Virginia was active in many organizations, however, family history was her passion. 

A new computer lab will allow for the return of GED testing and more computer courses. A dividable conference room, with seating for up to 16, and study rooms, will provide new places to meet and work on projects. 

Local & Family History Collection

The former Franklin Sylvester Collection serves as the foundation for the space and includes books, microfilm, photographs, maps, and more to help you research your ancestors.  Learn more about our holdings in the Local History & Genealogy Research Sources booklet.

It is enhanced with Virginia Wheeler Martin's archival collection of research notes, vital records, and photographs, documenting her ancestors. Surnames covered include Baker, Bennett, Brandt, Crawford, Curtiss, England, Frazier, Moore, Pentz, Richardson, Wheeler, and others. Geographic coverage includes Medina, Seville, and various other locations.
