The Prairie History Room is a specialized non-circulating collection of resources located at the Central Branch of the Regina Public Library. The collection focuses on the history and peoples of the Northern Great Plains (Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan) from pre-settlement times to present day.
Open seven days a week, the Room's mandate is "to assist all individuals in their quest for knowledge about Prairie history and family history." For the convenience of our researchers, we provide several microfilm readers connected to either coin-operated or card-operated printers; a photocopier; and a couple of Library-catalogue only and Internet-accessible computer workstations connected to a laser printer.
Resources in the Prairie History Room include census records, Aboriginal and Métis genealogy, maps, directories and phone books, passenger lists, newspapers, and more.
