We are always looking for donations of new research material, particularly Pre-1900 photographs of Boone County. We have equipment to make copies if you don't want to part with the originals.

For lookups of Vital Records (Birth, Death, Marriage and Obituaries only), please mail a self-addressed stamped envelope plus copy fees (15 center per copy plus postage) to Ida Public Library - Local History, 320 N. State St., Belvidere, IL 61008
