Local History Library @ ETR

The Local Studies service is paused as the team prepare to digitise the catalogues and improve access to the growing archive.

Local studies will return in three phases: phase one begins early next year with the launch of a new digital platform, phase two will see a traditional local studies offer delivered from Washington Library when it reopens in Spring 2024, and the final phase will see a digitally reimagined local studies offer open in Culture House during the Summer of 2025.

While these changes are taking place:

  • Access to Find My Past is at City Hall
  • The current Electoral Register is available upon request in the City Library @ The Museum and Winer Gardens
  • New digital access to photograph and map archives coming soon

For information or any enquiries please email local.historylibrary@sunderland.gov.uk or call City Library and The Museum and Winter Gardens on 0191 561 5660.

Our free public access computers in Sunderland city centre are based within City Hall, Plater Way, Sunderland, SR1 3AA on the ground floor.
