Burton Historical Collection temporarily closed

From the Burton Historical Collection page on the Detroit Public Library website.
"Due to major repairs being made to our facility, many resources from the Burton Historical Collection are temporarily unavailable for staff or public use. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Until we can resume regular library service, please explore the online resources available from this page (https://detroitpubliclibrary.org/research/burton-historical-collection.) They include our Digital Collections (accessible without a DPL library card) and a wide range of databases, including historical newspapers  (accessible with your DPL library card.)
Email inquiries will be answered as time and resources permit. Reference questions that require material that is currently inaccessible will need to be resubmitted when the collection reopens. Please continue to check back here for updates.*

When Do You Need to Renew Your Membership?

The DSGR Board of Directors has voted to extend every active member's membership by one year due to the suspension of publication of the DSGR Magazine in the 2018-2019 publication term.   This has been completed.  You will be notified by email or snail mail when your membership is due for renewal.
