The Wright Museum’s Arnold and Carol Haynes Library

Since 2009, the Wright Museum’s Arnold and Carol Haynes Research Library has been available to students and researchers year-round by advance arrangement. The museum’s staff is flexible and will strive to accommodate patrons’ schedules – whether they be middle schoolers accompanied by an adult, post-doctoral researchers, or any history buff wanting to learn more about WWII history.

Some of the materials available in the main reading room include:

  • WWII unit histories
  • Eyewitness accounts
  • Scholarly monographs written by academic historians
  • WWII-era home front magazines, including a full set of LIFE from 1939-1945
  • WWII publications from the front lines, such as Stars and Stripes and Yank
  • Publications of the Office of War Information, Department of War, and other federal, state, and local agencies

To arrange a visit, please call (603) 569-1212.

There is a $10/day user fee, which is waived for museum members and students.
