The American Italian Research Library moved from its previous location at the America Italian Cultural Center in New Orleans to its current location at the East Bank Regional Library in 2012. The American Italian Research Library houses a large collection of oral histories, immigration records, notes, books, photographs and other artifacts chronicling the local Italian community. Listed below are some of our prized collections.

Sal Serio, curator of the Italian American Research Center at the East Bank Regional Library in Metairie, sponsors a series of genealogy courses. Please visit http://www.jplibrary.net/ for more information.
