Archival Collections

The archival collections of the Kitchener Public Library and the Waterloo Historical Society are held by the Grace Schmidt Room. Advance notice of at least 24 hours is required to view a collection.

We have put together a list of archival collections held by the library. A small collection of digital finding aids have been linked to certain collections. As more are scanned, they will be added to this list.

In an effort to provide better access and control over the library's archival holdings, we will not be accepting new archival collections until further notice.
