Merredin Regional Library

Old school local history collection and research in the library

The local history collection at the Merredin Library was started to gather items not connected to military and railway history, captured in other local collections. The Merredin Library is located in the old North Merredin Primary School and is the largest library in the central Wheatbelt. The local history collection is a great resource for local and family history research and includes maps, photographs, diaries, wonderful weather logbooks, and local pamphlets, brochures and flyers.
