Newton Free Library Staff and Trustees, 1970-2005

Newton Free Library

The City of Newton owns a wealth of historic materials that speak to the community's social, cultural, and governmental past. These materials reflect the civic life of and provide insight into Newton from the 19th through the early 20th century, a time when Newton was transforming from agriculture to industry and becoming a suburban Boston residential community. Presented here are formal and informal photographs (some undated) of Newton Free Library staff, trustees, staff parties with Newton city officials, and staff assemblies at the main library on Centre Street and at the new library on Homer Street.
