Grafton High School Yearbook Archive is Now Online
The Grafton Public Library, in partnership with Grafton High School, has digitized a collection of Grafton High School yearbooks. To view the complete scanned editions for 1952-2013, please visit https://archive.org/details/graftonpubliclibrary. Additionally, the 1940 yearbook has been scanned as well.
Yearbooks are scanned in full color from 1980 on and can be read in a variety of formats on a computer, smartphone, or Kindle. The full page scans are not currently searchable; volunteers are needed to index the contents (i.e. enter the names of the students). GHS graduates with yearbooks dating from 1941-1951, or prior to 1940, are invited to loan their yearbooks for the scanning project.
The project was completed by the Boston Public Library and funded by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant administered by the Digital Commonwealth, an online library of photographs, manuscripts, recordings, and other materials of historical interest from libraries, museums and archives in Massachusetts. Projects are hosted on the Internet Archive website. The scanning project is part of an ongoing effort to increase digital content and to make the Library mobile and accessible to Grafton residents 24/7, wherever they are.
For more details, to volunteer your time, or to loan your yearbooks, please contact Beth Gallaway, Library Director, at 508-839-4649 or by email at email@example.com.
