Wendell Post Archives

Wendell Post Archives Link

There is now a direct link on the Wendell Free Library website to the Wendell Post Archives preserved in the UMass Library's Special Collections.

From 1977 through 2001, the Wendell Post was published by and for the residents of Wendell. With its distinctive local perspective, the Post covered not only local politics, people, and events, but also issues with national implications, including the anti-nuclear movement, environmental concerns, recycling, and peacework.

The Wendell Post collection contains nearly every issue of a community newspaper produced in a small, rural New England town. Most issues include reports on town meetings and elections, schools, and public works, but also the Post carried news of the stuff of daily life such as births and deaths, high school graduations, anniversaries, Old Home Day, profiles of town residents, town history, and the crime report.

The link is located on the Library's Online References tab, or you can click here: Wendell Post Archives.

 

Upcoming Science Fiction / Horror Movie nights in 2018

E-mail Print

For the 2018 season the Science Fiction / Horror Movie series will follow two themes: The Science Fiction theme will be time travel and the Horror theme will be witches. Both of these themes are well covered in literature and on screen (big and little). Time travel is a fascinating subject with issues of cause and effect paradoxes and speculation on what the future holds. Witchcraft has also fascinated humanity since the stone age and the idea of people that can cause magical things to happen can be both frightening and exciting.
