Local studies at Melbourne Library

Resources available at Melbourne Library.

The Local Studies section at Melbourne Library has a selection of books on the town and surrounding villages plus general books on both the county and traditional local industries. 

Melbourne Historical Research Group has deposited a number of fascinating topic packs on aspects of Melbourne's history. These are usually well illustrated. There are also copies of a number of key documents that cast light on the town's history. 

Copies of David Birt's extensive project files on the railways of the area are also available. You can see historical mapping for Melbourne and nearby villages and a microfilm reader gives access to files of local newspapers and census returns.
