Genealogy Library Key

The Welcome Center is being rekeyed today. In order to get into the Genealogy Library monitors will need to get the physical key from the Reception Desk. Please remember to return the key or the club will be charged for a replacement. I will let you know when the punch system is working again. Thanks for your help.
