Local and Family History
Gawler Public Library has access to a limited range of items from the Local History Collection, while the majority of the collection is in temporary storage during the establishment of the Heritage Research Centre (opening April 2019), at the Gawler Civic Centre.
The primary focus is on printed, published and paper-based material specifically relating to the history of Gawler and its region. The collection also contains photographs, oral histories and original manuscripts. Due to the reference nature of the material, we are unable to make it available for loan.
Ancestry Library Edition provides access to a wide range of unique resources for genealogical and historical research, and is available from all public access computers in both Libraries.
