About the Collection

The local history and archives collection is located on the second floor of the North Palm Beach Library. One of the purposes of the Library is to preserve our local history for future generations.

Share Your Story

You can be a part of history. Do you have a story to tell? If you live in North Palm Beach, or you have lived here previously, we would like to hear what you have to say. You may share your memories by completing the online Local History Interview Questionnaire, a fill-in-the blank online form, or download the Questionnaire in PDF format.  Contact the Village Historian if you'd like to set up an interview by email, telephone, or in person. Any information provided will be added to the archives and made available to others interested in the history of our Village.

We would also like to hear from those of you who remember Florida of the past. If you have anything you would like to share, please call 841-3383, email, or stop by the Circulation Desk.

We Accept Donations

We are always looking for new material to add to the archives. If you have photographs, documents, or other items to donate, please consider donating  to our collection, or inquire about the process and how your donation can help preserve our history for future generations..
