The Georgia Heritage Room is a resource center for historical and genealogical study, located on the third floor of the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library at 823 Telfair Street, Augusta, Georgia 30901. The repository houses an extensive collection of local, county, and Georgia history resources, as well as genealogy materials, including print resources and microfilm. The library subscribes to a variety of online databases for historical and genealogical research, such as Ancestry Library Edition, Heritage Quest and Digital Library of Georgia. The collection also holds materials from some surrounding states including South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
Because the Augusta Public Library is the headquarters library for the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System, the Georgia Heritage Room places special emphasis on the rich history of the Central Savannah River Area. The Georgia Room welcomes and encourages researchers, both the novice and the more advanced to use our materials and resources. While the Georgia Room makes every effort to build a more regional collection, and includes resources from bordering states, our primary focus is and always will be the Aiken-Augusta area.
All materials located in the Georgia Heritage Room are non-circulating, and meant for in-house research and study only. However, many of the print resources are available in the Georgia History stacks on the second floor of the library and can be checked out.
