We have three interns from Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science this semester. The archive interns are Kristin and Diana. Kristin continues to organize the Park St. Church collection that she began working on last semester. We are happy to have her back. Diana is working on the manuscript collection of sermons. She started the program at Simmons in January. Michelle is our records management intern. She is reviewing and organizing the local Boston church history materials in the library.

The first images have been added to our photo gallery. They are of the current reading room and one of a former reading room (from the 19th century). There will be more to come!

Welcome to the Congregational Library blog. We've started this blog to share and communicate the news of the library and to allow our patrons to comment on activities, books, and ideas of interest to the constituencies of the library. We plan to post pictures and images from our collections. You'll be informed on the progress of the automation of the card catalog and other projects. We invite your comments.
