Event: Come visit the Legislative Papers Collection at the State Library

When: Monday-Wednesday, April 14-16
Where: State Library Special Collections, State House Room 55
Reception: Tuesday, April 15, 10:30AM.
Refreshments will be served.

In honor of National Library Week, the State Library of Massachusetts is presenting an exhibit of materials from the Legislative Papers Collection. Come and learn about the careers of former state legislators, and find out more about the legislative papers collection: how it preserves the history of the Commonwealth, and how it is used by researchers.

The exhibit will highlight the careers of Barbara Gardner, Jack Backman, Barbara Grey, and others. These papers show senators’ and representatives’ commitment to the issues facing Massachusetts as a whole as well as their own constituencies.
