The Phillips Library Reading Room reopened to the public on Thursday, August 1, 2013 in our new, temporary location at
1 Second Street, Peabody, Massachusetts.
The Reading Room will be open on Wednesday and Thursday between 10 am and 4:30 p.m. Approved Visiting Researchers are welcome, by special appointment, on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday between 10 and 4:30 pm. We look forward to welcoming our patrons to the new Reading Room. Wi-Fi access is provided for our patrons.
The deadline for applying for one of six Phillips Library fellowships, which includes housing on the Salem campus of the Peabody Essex Museum, has been extended to April 1st (really – this is not an April Fool’s joke). Applicants who receive a fellowship will be notified by April 1.
Essex County Probate records, stored on microfilm, have been transferred from the Phillips Library to the Southern Essex County Registry of Deeds located at 45 Congress Street, Salem, MA. Access to these documents will be available for library patrons during the time the library is closed for renovations.
Please contact Kathie Gauthier or Kostas Psiakis at 978-741-0201 if you have questions regarding access to these materials.
