main street north adams postcardThe Local History Collection was established 35 years ago at MCLA. Gradually, additional materials have been added, largely through donations. Materials in the collection cannot be borrowed in person or through interlibrary loan.  Local history books in the collection can be searched through our online catalog.

The collection is not open for browsing, but individuals interested in the collection should contact the library at 662-5325 or via email before coming to the library.
