NJ Historical Society Ends Public Hours

Yet another state historical society down. Beginning on 17 February the New Jersey Historical Society in Newark closed its library indefinitely, furloughing staff for an undetermined period. The research library will now be open only by appointment.

The oldest cultural organization in New Jersey, the historical society was founded in 1845. Its library houses the "largest and finest collection of New Jersey-related material in existence."

An appropriate use of your tag. Disaster it is. This, right after the OHS. I wonder what will happen to the rest of the numerous other historical societies.
