Sharon Public Library would like to thank Mass Humanities, State-Based Affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities for partial funding for the Sharon Newspaper digitization project. "This program is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate for the National Endowment for the Humanities."
The Sharon Public Library exists to promote the free exchange of ideas, to provide opportunity for lifelong learning, and to be an essential community institution.
The Sharon Public Library (SPL) serves the 18,000 citizens of Sharon and surrounding communities in Massachusetts. The mission of SPL is to serve the informational, educational, cultural and recreational needs of all members of the Sharon community by providing access to a professional staff, a state of the art facility and quality materials, programs and services.
To that end, the history of the Town of Sharon has been recorded in the pages of the Sharon Advocate since 1883. Now, by partnering with the Sharon Historical Commission, the Sharon Historical Society and Advantage Preservation, and with generous support from Community Preservation funding, history of Sharon is more accessible through its newspaper archives.
