I just received in my email box the monthly issue of PastPorts, the newsletter for the St. Louis County Library's Special Collections department. The first sentence of the first article?
Footnote is now available in the Special Collections Department or at public
computers at any St. Louis County Library branch.
Unlike Ancestry.com, where I find myself searching their databases so often, free library access isn't sufficient -- at this point in my genealogy research, library access to Footnote will definitely be sufficient. My paid account will expire in September.
