Local and family history
The main collection of local history material for Salford is at Salford Local History Library, based at Salford Museum and Art Gallery. Libraries around the city also have some books of local interest:
- Broughton, Little Hulton, Swinton and Worsley Village libraries have small local history collections. As well as books for loan there are copies of photographs, maps and pamphlets.
- Cadishead Library has a collection of maps, and microfilm of The Cadishead and Irlam Guardian from 1920 to 1984.
- Little Hulton Library has copies of local interest pamphlets and photographs.
Many of our customers like to research their family tree. If you are a library member you can access Ancestry.com for free on the library PCs.
