Southwest Public Libraries

Local History Available Online

The Grove City Library's Reference/Adult Services Department maintains a joint collection of local historical images with the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society.

Using a tool called Content DM, reference staff are making these images available online for the first time to the public. The online collection can be accessed through SPL's home page. Under "Digital Image Collection," click the "Enter" button to access the website. The same link appears under "Research" and "eBooks and more."

New images will be continually added to the online collection from the more than 6,000 images that are currently part of the archive.

For more information about the collection, contact the Reference Department at 614-875-6716 ext. 503 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
