Richland County Public Library is a FamilySearch affiliate. Now you can order your microfilm or fiche and select to have it delivered to RCPL. This allows you to view the film in the Walker Local History Room at the Main Library during the hours we are open.
Here are the steps:
*Locate your film in the FamilySearch catalog
*Write down the FILM number
*TIP: do all your film searching at one time before ordering.
*Order film at the online film ordering site.
*If you don't have a Familysearch account create one.
*TIP: if you have an account sign-in access is at the top right of the page. It is VERY hard to find!
*Follow their ordering steps and make sure the Richland County Public Library is your Home Center.
* We will call/email you when the film has arrived.
Library Hours are: Monday-Thursday 9-9; Friday-Saturday 9-6; Sunday 2-6
We have scanning microfilm machines so bring a USB storage device if you want to scan images and save $$ printing.
Bring your laptop and you will have in-house access to our databases even if you do not have a Richland County library card. We have ALE, HeritageQuest, Accessible Archives and Newsbank-including SC Historical Newspapers).
