Text Box: Cookbook Collection
The Winchester Area Historical Society library committee is asking for donations of LOCAL cookbooks that you no longer use. These books may be published by local churches, organizations, schools, or families. They are asking for books that contain names and  historical information about our four-town area.  General cookbooks are not needed.
Text Box: Everyone is welcome to attend  any of the programs.

Volunteers Needed!

Interested in local history? What about genealogy? Are you a history detective? Do you have a passion for libraries? Do you like helping people of all ages? Do you read the newspaper every day? Are you comfortable with computers? Have some spare time on your hands? The Winchester Area Historical Society Local History Center and Library is in need of volunteers to help out with many different tasks.


We have several ongoing projects including updating obituaries and cemetery records, in addition to copying VHS tapes of WAHS programs onto DVDs to name a few. Future plans include being open to accommodate families with school-age children, including families in the area who are homeschooling.


We also need help in staffing the library during open hours. Currently the library is open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. No experience is necessary. We are happy to train any who are willing. Please contact us by phone at 920-836-9513, by email,, or stop at the library at 5186 County Road II in Winchester.
