Our Special Collections

The Library’s Special Collections

If you’re interested in learning about your past, then take a look through our Genealogy collection.

You’ll find books about how to start researching your family tree. Then you can take a look at census records, cemetery rolls, and marriage records. There are also yearbooks from local schools (including Duncanville) and scrapbooks. We even have old telephone directories.

Texas: the state so big that it demands its own non-fiction collection.

We’ve been a Texas Heritage Resource Center since 1982. Here you’ll find books that are solely about Texas. This is also where you’ll find biographies of Texans.
