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.
