Library Services

The staff at The Lower Merion Historical Society will be happy to answer questions and research requests, as time and resources permit. Please be as specific as possible when requesting information.

There is no substitute for doing your own research. Visit our headquarters and/or our website and experience our outstanding special collection of local and regional history. If that is impractical, we may be able to connect you with a professional to research on your behalf. In that case, all fees and terms would be negotiated between you and them. Please see our contact and location info in the page footer below.
