Newton Free Library Branches and Bookmobile, 1920-1981

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 photographs of the Newton Free Library bookmobile with driver and interior and exterior views of ten village branches.
