Old Springsteen yearbooks to be part of memorabilia collection

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Next week, a 14,900-document collection of items devoted to rock star Bruce Springsteen will be opening at the Monmouth University library in West Long Branch, N.J.

Songbooks, tour programs, magazines, photos, and Springsteen’s old yearbooks from Freehold High School will be a part of the massive collection, most of which had previously been kept in storage at the Asbury Park Public Library.

The collection will now be viewable by the public at the Monmouth library. Previously, it was only viewable by appointment.
