Join the Congregational Library & Archives

We welcome you to join the engaged community who support the ongoing preservation, interpretation and presentation of a collection that spans over 400 years. Encompassing the Congregational story as it first emerged from early modern England, to its expansion to Japan, and continuing impact on our contemporary world, we are continually making new discoveries that inform history. Your gift directly supports the work of the library as we continue to build the collection and make materials and programs freely available to faith communities, students, scholars, and the general public. In return, donors who contribute $50 ($25 for students) and above become members of the library with accompanying benefits.
