Ku-ring-gai Historical Society Library
Not to be confused with the Gordon branch of Ku-ring-gai Council Library (which is next door to us) the Ku-ring-gai Historical Society has its own extensive collection of books, databases and other research materials relating to Ku-ring-gai; its Local History and pioneers; plus its Built Heritage and natural heritage.
Our collection includes a very wide range of historical photographs and other images. We are in the process of fully cataloguing our collection, and aim to make that available on this website in due course, so that members and other researchers will be able to discover more readily whether we have materials that may assist their own research.
We have catalogued our collection of books and of much of our biographical files. A listing of this catalogue is available here (opens in a new window – 219 pages, file size 1MB) and is updated from time to time as required. The listing is in title order within category.
As it’s in PDF format, simply use the search facility of your web browser to search for names, places, authors, etc.
If you find a book or other item in our catalogue that’s of interest to you, you can view it in our Research Centre in Gordon. Please note that as we are not a lending library, you will need to visit us in person. However, if you are unable to visit us in person, we may be able to conduct some research for you, for an appropriate fee.
