Explore local history with Edmonton Public Library!

Our Digital Collections

Archival images, maps, manuscripts, artifacts, digitized books and more from Edmonton Public Library — new items added frequently.

Edmonton Public Library’s North of 52 Collection is rich with an abundance of local history, historical data, and one-of-a-kind documents with a focus on the history of northern Alberta—north of the 52nd parallel.

The Edmonton Public Library Archive captures the rich history of the Edmonton Public Library as a member of our communities. This collection of photographs and ephemera is ever-expanding, and captures highlights including Royal visits and the opening of new branches.
