Library/Archive Fund

for the Fall River Historical Society

Library/Archive Fund

The FRHS is a repository for a myriad of primary source material relating to Fall River’s history, and provides visiting scholars, students, teachers, and public visitors with rare and important resources.

Gifts to the Library/Archive Fund provide the means to expand the holdings of the Charlton Library of Fall River History through the acquisition of out-of-print or current titles in a wide range of categories and in various formats. In addition, monies from this fund are used for the rebinding, conservation, or digitizing of damaged or fragile materials.

Gifts (follow this link) may be designated as either honorary or memorial contributions and, at the donor’s discretion, can be identified on a bookplate affixed within the volume(s).

Building and conserving the library’s holdings ensures that it will amass a comprehensive catalogue and continue to offer the best educational resources to its many patrons for years to come.

All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowable by law.
