Welcome to the Walsh History Center at the Camden Public Library.   Our goal is to care for material of historical significance to the residents of Camden and Rockport.  We have a vast collection of historical photos and documents.  Come browse our newspaper and map collection, trace your roots, or look up your family  in Camden & Rockport high school yearbooks (1896-present)!

Please remember us when cleaning out your attic!  If you aren’t ready to part with family treasures like photos, letters, and diaries but want to help add to the story of our towns, bring them in and staff can quickly scan them and return them to you, or give you a digital copy in return for originals.
