The East Baton Rouge Public Library

The East Baton Rouge Public Library is located at 7711 Goodwood Blvd., in East Baton Rouge Louisiana 70806.  I did not have time to do research here, but did want to review this place before moving on.  The genealogy materials are had in the "Special Collections" room located on the second floor.  This is open to the public and there is lots of room to spread out.  I counted ten microfilm readers.  There are maps, and books arranged by state. Louisiana, not surprisingly, had the largest representation with five rows of stacks.  Parishes are arranged by call number.  I only found two books for Iberia Parish - of interest to me on this trip - but otherwise the collection was impressive.

Free ample parking.  Close to eats and everything else you'd need.
