Note: This is a work in progress.
Welcome to Andover Answers
Andover Answers is a collection of information about Andover, Massachusetts that the staff of Memorial Hall Library has gathered over the years. It started out as a "snag file" of 3x5 index cards used by our reference librarians to help answer patrons' questions. We entered the information into a wiki, to make it easier for our librarians to search and present it to the public.
What kinds of information does it have?
The entries in Andover Answers cover people, places, and events that, in one way or another, have some connection with Andover. Some of the entries answer frequently asked questions. Other entries contain information from questions that were difficult to answer, so we decided to document the answer. Still others have interesting facts about Andover that might be useful to anyone studying Andover. All questions show the source of the information for further research on the topic.
