Our local studies library is a treasure trove of information on Farnham which cannot be found anywhere else. We have maps, census data, parish records, electoral rolls, street directories, newspapers, a photographic archive and more. Most of the collection is held on the open shelves for you to browse as reference materials.

We are currently unable to support research requests or provide access to our collections or archives, unless in exceptional circumstances. This will be reviewed in January 2024.
