The Glennon Archives is the repository for Woburn Public Library’s historical collections. Dr. Thomas J. Glennon was a local historian and Library Trustee between 1947 and 1994. The Archives includes the Woburn Collection, The Local History Collection, the Archive Collections and the Museum.
The Woburn Collection consists largely of published works relating to Woburn and its inhabitants. This collection is located on the first floor of the Library and can be accessed by speaking to a Reference Librarian. The Local History collection is made up of published works including genealogies, military histories and histories of surrounding towns and cities. These books are on call and are also accessed through a Reference Librarian. The Archive Collections of unpublished manuscripts, photographs and other materials are available for research by appointment with the Archivist. None of the items in these Collections circulate; they must be used in the Library only.
