The Local History Collection houses books that cover the cities, towns, counties, schools, industry, architecture and geography of Western Massachusetts.
The Collection is available to patrons Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For access to the collection, inquire at the Circulation Desk. An appointment may be required.
The Local History Collection contains valuable and often irreplaceable materials. Consequently, controlled access is necessary. Local History materials do not circulate. Depending on the age and condition of an item, photocopy restrictions may apply. No bookbags, knapsacks, briefcases, etc. may be brought into the Local History/Archives area. Only pencils, not pens, may be used while working with these materials.
