Framingham Local History
The Framingham local history collection is located in the reference department of the main library. This collection has noncirculating materials in various formats, which contribute to a history of Framingham and its residents, past and present. Catalogued materials are listed in the online catalog by author, title, and subject. The reference staff is available to assist in the use of these materials during regular service hours. 
See our local history guides for details about this collection.

Local History Additions
The Reference department proudly announces two new additions to our local history collection! We have gathered a collection of more than 80 postcards depicting Framingham in an era before telephones were commonly used. If you would like to add to this collection, we would be happy to be the recipient of your old post cards. Please come take a look at the Framingham Public Library Postcard Collection (Framrm Locked Case 383.122).
We have also created a collection of many historic photographs depicting aspects of life in Framingham. The photos are stored in boxes each with subject indexes. Our long-term plan is to digitize all of these materials and make them available on the library website, but for now please visit the library and enjoy these unique collections.
View a small sampling of the historic photographs here.
