Open to the public since 1826, the State Library has developed comprehensive collections in the areas of government documents, law, Massachusetts history, and public and current affairs. From the Bradford manuscript "Of Plimoth Plantation" to an ever-expanding digital repository, the holdings of the State Library shed light on the Commonwealth's past, present, and future.
There are several ways you can help:
- Show your support for the State Library by signing its online petition.
- Contact the Governor directly via his website and ask that he keep the State Library open.
- Consider making a donation to the Friends of the State Library of Massachusetts.
