The Society Library is available for research into local history free to members and $10 per day for non-members. Besides the history of Shirley people, places, and organizations, our special collections relate to the Shakers, and the MacKaye, Longley, and Lawton families.  We also have many books relating to general New England history and museum topics.


Volunteers with many different talents are always needed and appreciated. Contact the curator, or any of the officers, if you would like to know how you can help out.
