The club has published a well-read book that chronicles the establishment of some of the very early New England glass houses. The book, Yankee Glass, A History of Glassmaking in New Hampshire 1790 - 1886, reviews the beginnings of glass manufacturing in Temple, Franklin, Keene, Stoddard and Lyndeborough.

Over the years, individual members have written a wide variety of books and numerous magazine articles.
