Research Library

Teachers planning lessons are welcome to do research for free at the Leahy Library, located at the Vermont History Center in Barre. The library contains thousands of photographs, books, posters, maps, and other documents that tell the stories of Vermont.

Students in middle and high school grades can visit the library to discover the primary sources of Vermont’s past and hone their research skills. Please contact to arrange a research experience for your students.
