Local History


The Santa Clara City Library collects, preserves, and organizes historical materials to provide the community with local history research opportunities and to foster civic pride in the City’s colorful heritage. Housed in Central Park Library’s Heritage Pavilion, this collection covers Santa Clara’s development from the founding of Mission Santa Clara to the present. Materials collected and displayed include: books, maps, photographs, posters, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, pamphlets, oral histories, audiovisual materials, copies of manuscripts, and other primary source documents. View a sampling of these materials and those of other local collections through Silicon Valley History Online
