Local History

Search the Library

The library carries a large collection of books, newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals, and seeks to curate local content as much as possible. Newspapers can provide insight into business or political or crime or even sport events that occurred in the community. And more broadly, books and journals and encyclopedias can provide insight into the larger context in which your community exists. In most cases, to find sources from the library you will need to look at the broader historical context in which your topic occurs. Search the library, or select a database below.
