Archives Location and Hours of Opening

For more than 25 years the BHS Archives has been housed in Burlington's Central Public Library*, where the Burlington History Room provides a protective and secure environment. We are located on the 2nd floor, at the far end of the Longos' Media Area.

We are regularly open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:15 am to 12:15 pm and welcome you to drop in for

  • a tour of the archives and an introduction to our collection
  • brief reference questions
  • to discuss or make a donation of papers or photographs

* Please note that the BHS Archives is not a library department. While librarians are happy to show you to our area if we are open, they are not authorized to use the BHS collection. Telephone assistance is not available.
