Halton Hills Public Library. A world within our doors

Main menu


The Halton Hills Public Library's Georgetown Branch  is home to Esquesing Historical Society's  growing archival collection.  The Esquesing Historical society collects and preserves archival material including any documents, photographs, ephemera, newspapers and post cards related Esquesing Township or the people who lived here. 

The Library has hosted the archives since 1982.  Through longstanding partnerships, generous donations, and hours of work by dedicated volunteers and summer students, the archives has expanded its digital content.  Through the Our Digital World, most of the local newspapers are available online in full-text searchable documents.  Similarly over 10,000 photographs and several volumes of Tweedsmuir Histories are also online.

The Archives is available at the Georgetown Branch and materials can be viewed during regular opening hours.  Although the library can accommodate requests for copies of materials, please check out the eResources for full text material.   Depending on your area of interest, there may be other materials available in our local history collection.
