A new office and library for the Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides (ALBG) at Gettysburg National Military Park opened this weekend on Steinwehr Avenue. The ALBG is renting the space in order to find room to accommodate its research holdings, and to have those holdings accessible to members 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

See our post of the old Guide Room at the Electric Map Visitor Center on March 8, 2008.

See our post of the new Guide Room at the New National Park Service Visitor Center on April 19, 2008. The guide room at the new Visitor Center is for all Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guides. The guide room on Steinwehr Avenue is for ALBG members and associates only.



The entrance to the ALBG room is the front entrance to Patriot’s Point, here at the corner of Queen Street and Steinwehr Avenue. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.



In the front lobby, you’ll see Carly the ALBG Guard Dog. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.



You’ll then enter the area between the blue frames where ALBG Officer and Librarian, Jim Clouse, is entering. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.



The area is still in “transition” at the moment. Here, at the entrance to the ALBG space, some displays hide the filing cabinets and map cabinets. This view was taken from the southeast facing northwest at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.



On the left as you enter the guide space is an area for officers to do paperwork. This view was taken from the northeast facing southwest at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.



Here’s the main area where most of the books are stored. It is not yet decided if Guides will take tours out from this area. As one officer shared, however, “it’s still a good place for guides to get away from their families for a while.” This view was taken from the east facing west at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.



Here is another view of the library area. This view was taken from the west facing east at approximately 5:15 PM on Monday, August 25, 2008.
