Appointments are encouraged to allow library staff time to research specific questions in advance of a library visit.
Special Collections materials do not circulate and some unique Items are kept in locked storage. Many of the locked storage items can be set-aside in advance in of your library visit. These items all must be used in the company of library staff.
Please note many Newton History items from the locked storage area have been digitized. Take a look at: http://guides.newtonfreelibrary.net/digitalnewton/history. Links to these items are also available via the library’s catalog: http://find.minlib.net.
We will locate materials to assist your research and contact you to arrange a date/time to meet with you.
