These are electronic collections of magazine articles, books, facts and pictures. Thanks to the Massachusetts Library System, we now have many new databases. Explore a little--especially if you're a college student and have a paper to write. Have your library card number ready in case you need to type it for access.
NEW! The Library now has subscriptions to 2 Genealogy websites. You can use Ancestry.com's library version here in the building, and users at home can use Heritage Quest to research census records, books and much more. You will need your library card number to use this handy link:
Heritage Quest--National Genealogy website.
Access to both these genealogy websites is funded by the Friends of the Fitchburg Public Library.
