Resource Center is Open for Business
After a couple of months and many hours of planning, packing, moving and unpacking the OGS Resource Center is open for business. I would like to thank everyone that participated in the project for their time and efforts. Both members and non-members helped during the process. The cost of the move was covered by donations from our membership.
The new location is a storefront in the Meridian Plaza Shopping Center on the corner of NW 16th Street and North Meridian Avenue in OKC. The address is 4516 NW 16th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73127. Our mailing address is still PO Box 12986, Oklahoma City, OK 73157-2986.
When you come to the Resource Center for research, classes or SIG there are three restaurants in Meridian Plaza to meet your needs and a city park across the street if you need a break. The Resource Center also has a coffee bar and refrigerator for your use. The facility is on one level and the bathroom is ADA compliant. We have tried to have all areas wheel chair accessible. There are two handicap parking spaces at the front door and a large lighted parking lot out front.
We hope everyone can come and use our new space. Our hours are 9-4 on Mondays (except major holidays) or by appointment. If you have free time please come by and volunteer to help us with our various projects. With more volunteers we can expand our hours and offer more to our fellow genealogists. Being a beginner is not a reason not to volunteer. Everyone can have something to share. Those of us that have been at it for a few decades still learn something new from the experiences of others.
