During the Fall of 2019, the Congregational Library will be getting a new look.

We'll be undergoing renovations to provide state of the art exhibit space and updated office space to continue and expand the important work that we do. Our reading room will remain open and all of our materials will be available. In order to prepare for these exciting changes, materials have been shifted away from areas where work is occurring and may require advance notice to access.

When planning your research visit, we ask that you give us 48 hours notice regarding which materials you're interested in using.

If you have questions or need help planning your visit, we're happy to help! Please email us at
