Worcester Historical Society Library is a small non-lending reference library. Our contents are limited to donations and selected purchases.
We currently have searchable catalogs of:
Reference (Montgomery County, local history, agriculture, family histories)
School texts/copybooks (Worcester School District, student signed)
Businesses & organizations in Worcester Township (minutes, receipt books, etc.)
Religious (church and member histories, Bibles with family histories)
Scrapbooks (20th century newspaper clippings [not exclusive to Worcester])
Submitted genealogies, recollections, etc.
School (class, individual)
Announcements/awards (graduation, funeral, merit)
Deeds (selected properties – see either the Montgomery County Historical Society or the County Courthouse for all township deeds)
There is also an unindexed “Clippings” file containing newspaper and magazine clippings arranged either by subject or alphabetically.
The Society’s document collections (including deeds, photographs, ledgers, and scrapbooks) are now included in a searchable index of the document collections of hundreds of local libraries and historical societies, both large and small.

This project is part of the Council on Library and Information Resources’ national program to identify and catalog hidden special collections and archives, to make this information more available to researchers and the general public.
