Map of Dundee Central School District

The local history collection is limited by space. Materials focus on the communities within the Dundee Central School in Yates County. Many of our materials are from the Woman’s Study Club who founded the Library in 1908. There are other resources on the Finger Lakes, New York state and other communities in the circulating and reference collections (see STARCat). The local newspapers are available on-line and are not at the Library. Microfilm is available from the New York State Library. Please use the online resources available. Library staff do not conduct research. During regular library hours staff will assist in searches as time permits.
