Buffalo History books of 2018


The “New Books” shelf in the Grosvenor Room–check here for new titles!

In case you missed some of the local history titles published recently, here are a few of the popular books added to the Buffalo Collection in 2018.  Some may have been published prior to 2018, but are new to our collection.

Copies in the Grosvenor Room are reference only, which means we’ll always have them on hand for you to view. However, many of the books we add to the collection also have circulating copies elsewhere you can take home, whether from Central, or another B&ECPL branch.  Search our catalog or click on the links below to see available copies.
