The library has a responsibility to conserve local history materials. This repository of research materials is available for serious research and , therefore, it DOES NOT CIRCULATE. Whenever possible, duplicates are in the circulating or reference collections. Besides books, Archives includes such items as pamphlets, postcards, photographs, clippings, maps, artifacts, and town records. Most of the items are unique and irreplaceable. Access to the Archives is restricted to the staff. The Adult Reference staff will be happy to assist you. Other restrictions are in place to preserve the collection, call the library (860-779-5383) for details regarding the use of this collection.
