The following directories are housed in the Research Center of Central Library:
City Directories 1909-present (with these exceptions: 1945, 1949, 1952, 1962, and 1998)
City directories are a great resource for finding people. Entries often include occupation and adult children living in a household. Beginning in 1912, the directories may be searched in a reverse manner as the streets are listed alphabetically. This collection is available in both print and microfilm formats.
Telephone Directories 1931-present (with these exceptions: 1929, 1936, and 1943)
The telephone directories cover a greater geographic area than the city directories.
Cross Reference Directories 1943-present (with these exceptions: 1947 and 1953)
Cross reference directories in the collection are organized by telephone number and by street address.
