We've begun digitizing parts of our historical collection to provide off-site access to the documents.  Thanks to funding provided by the Digital Commonwealth, we will be able to digitize more items every year.  Included in the first batch are Marsengold High School Yearbooks, William R. Mann diaries, Deborah Sampson items and lots more. Take a Look!
