The Stahlman Library is located on the second floor of the museum. The research library was established in honor of Jim Stahlman who, along with his wife Peg, founded the Plymouth Historical Society in 1990. The library resources may be viewed in-house.

The library collection includes:

  • Plymouth High School Year books

  • Clara Steinecker Collection
    The Clara Steinecker collection is comprised of extensive educational materials utilized in the local school systems. Mrs. Steinecker was a teacher, school administrator and author, who spent a lifetime collecting items such as globes,maps, attendance records, books and teaching aids.
