Local History Leaflets refer to a selection of information booklets, flyers and pages that were produced by City of Canterbury Library Service in order to provide local history information to residents and rate payers.


Origin

Service additional to book lending began to develop in the 1950s public libraries including childrens services and historical studies. Canterbury Council, in particular, lacking a museum, played a role in providing historical information to the public. Although the exact dates and origin of the Local History Leaflets is unclear, the articles on which the suburb pages of this wiki are based derive from the mid 80s to early 90s before City of Canterbury Library Service had its own website. These leaflets were typewritten foolscap pages provided to the public and available through the library's ephemera collection, sorted according to suburb in filing cabinets.
