genealogy and harriman, tennessee's carnegie library building

the main reading room of harriman, tennessee's public library

harriman's public library was established with the support of the carnegie library building program and gets a brief mention in the online tennessee encyclopedia.

i can't say enough nice things about the harriman library and its friendly, helpful staff. though its genealogy "room" is more of a nook off to the right of the main hall, the library is certainly worth setting aside time to visit. not only did we get a great taste of local history by poking around the building itself, we found a couple of items we haven't located elsewhere. we were easily able to set up our laptop on a table in the main reading room and hunker in for several productive hours. the staff does all the photocopying - quickly and at reasonable rates.

I am looking for some good "genealogy sites" resources for our ratings and review websites and believe it or not, yours popped up when I searched for "genealogy sites" blogs. After reading your posts, I can see why Google led me to your site. Even though it's not what I am looking for, I'm glad I stopped long enough to read your posts. Just thought you'd like to know….. thanks
