The Superior Public Library in Superior, Nebraska has a variety of genealogy resources available for public use. The library's card catalog may be searched online.

The library's web site states they do not check out their genealogy materials, but they will do look-ups. A microfilm reader is available and copies are $.35.

Other resources of interest to genealogists:
