Using high-resolution imagery and information to relate the stories of Roseville.

Our Carnegie Library Museum is 102 years old now.

We've been busy fulfilling our mission by preserving Roseville's history. With volunteer support, Roseville's newspapers from the past are being indexed for easier access. You could be a part of it too. Help us open a window onto the past as one of our volunteers.

As we continue to carry out our mission by preserving stories, photos and documents from the community, our view on the past becomes clearer. Sometimes connections are made or a new perspective is gained when we discover an unknown piece of information. Each historical tidbit we capture sharpens our focus and the historic picture becomes easier to see.
