The children from Walter French Middle School celebrate the Lansing Centennial in 1947.
The Forest Parke Library & Archives serves as steward and primary repository for CADL's Special Collections. Many items are housed on-site (on the lower level of the Downtown Lansing library, 401 S. Capitol Ave.), some are in off-site storage, others at branch locations. Some items are too fragile for public use. Please check on the availability of resources before visiting. Most holdings are within the Ingham County Local History Collection, which is comprised of books, manuscripts, photographs, maps, ephemera, film and 3D objects.
We are gradually moving collections from our prior website
