Local History

Our Local History Collection

Located in the Historical Room near the Reference Desk our collection of local history materials is an invaluable resource on the history of Franklin Township and its people. The collection is available to all interested persons whenever the Library is open. All the material in the Franklin Township Local History collection is for reference only and may not be checked out. A photocopier is provided in the Library for those who wish to make copies. A microfilm reader/printer is available to read and make copies of the newspapers on microfilm.


Digital Collections:

In addition to physical materials the library has several digital collections.
