The Local History Collection includes books and oral history interviews, local newspapers, genealogical references and microfilm.  The collection is focused predominantly on the Gascoyne Region. Some of the Collection is listed on the Library Catalogue.

While many of the items have restricted access, Library staff are more than happy to assist with customer enquiries.

In our Local History Room, access to digital microfilm, free internet searching and online access to the popular Ancestry database are available for use during Library opening hours by arrangement at the front counter.
