The stories of Newcastle and the Hunter are showcased through talks, events and exhibitions in the Local History Gallery.
These exhibitions and events allow people to see many of the highlights of the Library's collection. From the serious to the quirky, there is always something for everyone.
Local author Julie Keating has collaborated with the Local History team to produce an exhibition celebrating the launch of her new book Newcastle's Hunter Street: The First 100 Years.
Newcastle Stories: a series of talks held on the first Thursday of each month.
Photographs and memorabilia from Local Studies exhibitions and events can be found displayed on our Flickr site.
