What is in The Hills' Local Studies Collection?

All of the local libraries within The Hills Shire contain resources that detail the history of the Shire, its suburbs, development, and important persons and families. Castle Hill branch has the most comprehensive collection with smaller holdings at Rouse Hill, Baulkham Hills, Carlingford, and Dural.

Local Studies resources include books, reports, local newspapers, pamphlet files, aerial photos, maps and street directories. Many of these items are unique, fragile, often out of print and therefore irreplaceable. As a result they can only be used in the Library.

Each branch holds copies of the main items relevant to its area but the main collection is held at Castle Hill. Some duplicate copies may be found in the Lending Collection. Holdings of The Hills District Historical Society Inc. are included in the Library Catalogue. Please consult the on-line catalogue or ask staff for assistance.
