Reference and Research

The Morrill Memorial Library has a full-service reference department with a librarian always available to help you find the book or information you need. We can also answer quick reference questions by telephone or email, or help you use library resources from your home computer. Call the Reference Department at (781) 769-0200 x110, or email Reference at

Financial, legal, medical, literary, biographical and other research materials are available in the Reference Room. The New York Times from 1962 and Norwood newspapers since 1887 are on microfilm. The Norwood Archives Collection includes street listings (1876-), annual reports (1872-), high school yearbooks (1938- ) and other items of local historical interest. Through the Minuteman Library Network and the Metrowest Massachusetts Regional Library System, patrons have full text access to collections focusing on health, business, and general information as well as the Boston Globe and Boston Herald newspapers. Minuteman also provides the Community Information and Referral database, which gives information on community organizations and services within the area.

If you can’t find what you are looking for here at the library, our reference librarians can help you obtain items through inter-library loan and the Massachusetts Commonwealth Catalog.
