The Pomeranian Society of Freistadt


Our library is located at the former schoolhouse in Mequon that now serves as the Lindenwood Community Center. The large, unique collection of books and reference materials focuses mainly on Pomerania, with some items that touch on other nearby provinces (Brandenburg, Posen, East Prussia and West Prussia). 
Library hours are flexible by giving the librarian prior notice.
When PVF meetings resume in May and June 2021, the library will be open! Masks and social distancing will be required. The library is open for one hour for browsing or researching prior to regularly-scheduled meeting times on the second Saturday of the month.  Open library times are 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. for researchers; 1:00 p.m. for the meeting on the second Saturday of the month. Please note that there are no Verein meetings in April or August, and no research time is scheduled for October (Erntedankfest) or December (Weihnachtsfest) due to the special events on those days.
Genealogy helping sessions are held on an individual basis by appointment. Contact Linda Herrick at genealogy@pommerscher.org

Pommerscher Verein Freistadt Library Fees


   Following are the fees per individual for on-site use of the PVF Library:

PVF full membership....................FREE

PVF associate membership...........$5.00/day



Contact Linda Herrick at dherrick1947@gmail.com in order to gain entrance to the PVF library at Lindenwood. There are no fees for browsing or researching at regular meetings.


Also, because of the high cost of maintaining the printer/photocopier, copies will now be 25¢ each. Researchers are welcome to bring their own scanners/cameras but may be refused permission to duplicate copyrighted materials.

The library has a computer catalog of the holdings at the Lindenwood Community Center.
Find a shortened version of the catalog (title and author) online by using the link "Library Catalog" in the red column on the left.
