The Thunder Bay Museum has a special, non-lending library of over 2,700 books about the city of Thunder Bay and its predecessor communities, as well as the region of Northwestern Ontario. This includes rare volumes that are unlikely to appear elsewhere and books that reference specific types of artifacts that exist among the Museum’s holdings.

Thanks to a grant from the Documentary Heritage Communities Program the Thunder Bay Museum is able to offer an online inventory of its library catalogue. Just click here to access the database.

Access to the library is open weekdays from 9am to 5pm, by appointment. Contact the Museum to arrange for access.
