The Alberni District Historical Society manages the Community Archive Collection, which is located in the Alberni Valley Museum building. Dedicated volunteers acquire and preserve the community’s paper treasures, which are then made available to the public. Enquiries about this extensive collection are welcome, by phone or by e-mail.

The Society encourages the public to add to the collection by bringing in items that tell the story of our community, such as documents, letters, records, Minutes or other memorabilia. Contact the archives by phone or email if you have something to donate, or if you are not sure if something is suitable. Today’s information is tomorrow’s history.
