The Palmer Public Library is proud to offer the Quaboag Valley Historical Center on the third floor of the library. This room houses a fascinating collection of materials related to the history of Palmer and surrounding towns that includes books, photos, maps, high school yearbooks, and much more.

To access the QVHC, please ask at the second floor Reference Desk. We’ll ask you to sign in and leave an ID on file with a librarian while you do your research. Briefcases, backpacks, and bags (excluding purses) must be left at the Reference Desk during your time in the QVHC. As always, librarians are available to assist patrons with research.

Don’t forget that you can also access our Local History eResources from home!
