Introducing the Newark Public Library Digital Archive

The Newark Public Library has digitized over 50 collections and 35,000 items related to African American, Latino and Newark history! These include photographs, city directories, documents, objects, newspapers, documents, maps and more!

Check out the archive now!

Highlights include thousands of photos of Newark Public Schools, the Samuel Berg collection of Newark Street photos, Newark maps and atlases, Newark area newspapers (including the Newark Herald, City News, and La Tribuna!), Newark yearbooks (1950-current), & so much more!

The new site is still under construction and our old site is still viewable here.

Do you have a historic photo, document, or other item you’d like to contribute to our digital collection? Please email njreference@npl.org for information on how to preserve your family’s memories in our archive!

This project was partially funded by the Carnegie Foundation.
