Hinton Archives background
Hinton Coal Branch Archives was added to the Library as part of renovations in 2007. Special considerations include environmental controls, supervised access and a research area.
"The mandate of the Hinton Coal Branch Archives is to promote and encourage the appreciation and study of the history of Hinton and surrounding area by acquiring, preserving and making accessible to the public, records in any format which reflect the history of this area."
As of March 13, 2020, access to archival material will be available by research request and mediated by archival staff until further notice. We will gladly assist you with your research needs. Please phone to speak to an archive staff member.
