Reading, Records, and Religion: The Congregational Library & Archives
The Etna Library will host a talk with Librarian Sara Trotta and Archivist Zachary Bodnar from the Congregational Library & Archives in Boston.
The Congregational Library began in 1853 with the donation of 56 books from the personal collections of a group of Boston clergyman. Now, a century and a half later, the library has become an internationally recognized resource for scholars, religious leaders, and local churches.
Sara and Zachary will discuss the history of the Congregational Library & Archives and share some of the more unique items in its extensive collections. (The Library is home to materials such as Salem Witchcraft Trial records, comic books (!), and a wealth of rare documents offering a rich and remarkable view of life in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century New England.
