Local History - The Burlington Room

One of the goals of the Burlington Public Library is to preserve and make available for public use the papers, photographs, and related archival material that document the history of the Town of Burlington, before and after its establishment in 1806.

The Burlington Room, created when the library was renovated in 1994, is home to the library's local history collection. The collection contains books pertaining to Burlington history, family genealogies, photographs, clippings, diaries, maps, and other print materials. The library also has copies of the many compilations of town history assembled by town historian Leonard Alderman. Library staff and volunteers are currently working on indexing and cataloging the collection for ease of use.

Ann Mazeau is our local history specialist and is available to assist patrons with historical and genealogical research. She is available by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, email her at annm@libraryconnection.info or leave her a message at the library 860-673-3331.
