Historical Collections - Overview
The Squamish Public Library manages the Squamish Digital History Collection of hundreds of historical photographs, newspapers (1948-2001), and audio recordings. Currently there are 39 photograph collections available. The newspaper collection will be added in late December 2011 / early January 2012.
To access the archives, browse or search our online Squamish Digital History Collection or visit the Library and ask for help at the Information Desk. High resolution photographs are available on CDs and can be borrowed from the library. Newspapers can be viewed on microfilm and PDF. Audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with Squamish pioneers are also available.
All image copies are provided for research and private study use only. If researchers intend to publish, display, or exhibit these images in any public manner (including web display), we ask that you first receive permission from the Squamish Public Library and acknowledge us as the source.
This Squamish Digital History Collection of local history materials was initiated through the support of Young Canada Works and Service Canada. The Library thanks these organizations and the Squamish community for their contributions and enthusiasm in this digital project.
