The Albany History Collection

The Albany History Collection is part of the Albany Public Library and was established to collect documentary historical information on Albany and the surrounding regions.

The collection was set up in the 1980s and has since become one of Western Australia’s leading local history collections. There is a Reading Room for public access to the collection.

The Collection contains all types of documentary information – books, pamphlets, journals, newspapers, maps, photographs, private archives, oral histories, films and birth, death and marriage registers. These are stored in a variety of formats, including microfilm and CD-ROM.
