For a number of years the DeWitt Historical Society (now The History Center in Tompkins County) helped authors and researchers publish more than 60 books on local history. Since 2019 we have moved away from publishing books as our public programming and education offerings have grown in our new location at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture. We are happy to support local history authors with research needs, public programming, and promotion of their finished books. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Books can be purchased in-person at our Exhibit Hall on the first floor of the Tompkins Center for History & Culture or ordered below. We encourage those interested in local history titles that are out of stock to check our local bookstores: Buffalo Street Books, Cornell Press, Odyssey Bookstore, and Autumn Leaves Used Books.
**Educators interested in acquiring discounted or free copies for their schools or classrooms are encouraged to reach out to us.**
Many local history books not available for purchase can be read in our Research Library.
