On my visit I noticed again partnership in action at the Centrepointe library branch. Brochures from various family history organizations are neatly on display. A book on Leeds family history purchased for the OPL by BIFHSGO was on the display stand at the entrance to the second floor along with other books of interest for the history enthusiast.

Good job OPL Centrepointe.
