Research & Search Engines
Search engines are a fine place to start a search of the internet, but often the results are unsatisfactory. Besides, the internet isn't the only place to find information. The library is a great place to start your search.  The Heritage Room contains many resources for local, county, and state research.

  • See our online database links for general and specialized databases, including genealogy, health and wellness, and more. 
  • Use Iowa Locator or WorldCat to find books, CDs, DVDs, and other items in libraries.
  • Check out our Digital Collections site to view scanned historical documents and photographs from the Library collection!
  • The Heritage Room has a collection of local history, including family histories, yearbooks, cemetery records, and back issues of the Pella Chronicle on microfilm.
Iowa Heritage Project and Iowa Publications Online can help you dig deep into all things Iowa.
