One of the best genealogy collections in the world. Second only to Salt Lake in the U.S. Wonderful knowledgeable people. The main part of the library is also fantastic. Check out the children's room and the maker space.

This sounds more like a statement rather than a question. And if the questioner already works at the Allen County Public Library, then I would think they would know the answer. Don't know why this came to me.
