About Me

Welcome to The Family Room!  My name is Mary and I am the Collection Specialist here in the California History and Family Research Room at the Madera County Library. 

Being a native Maderan, I enjoy being able to share my knowledge of Madera and its history with fellow researchers, as well as assisting those patrons who are just beginning their family research adventure.  In full disclosure, I will admit that I am not a writer.  I work in a room full of old books, pictures, maps and various collections about Madera County and am quite happy doing just that.  However, after working here for some time, it has become  clear to me that this room has its own stories to share and for now, I will be the storyteller.
