The Ogdensburg Public Library has both a local history room and an archive. The Local History Room is available for browsing with proper identification. Material in our archives is only available by request. Please contact our archivist for details.
The local history room includes city directories, cemetary records, scrapbooks, and maps, as well as microfilm copies of Ogdensburg newspapers, church records, and old census records.
Manuscript and Other Collections(pdf) in the archives. We are in the (extensive) process of reorganizing and cataloging the archives, so this is by no means a complete list. We have information on many local individuals, families, and businesses, so please ask us for what you need.
We have Ogdensburg Free Academy yearbooks - the Devilog - for browsing (but not checkout) for certain years. Available at present: 1946, 1948, 1954-1967, 1969, 1971-1977, 1980-1982, 1984, 1987, 1992-1997, 1999-2001, 2003, 2005-2007.
Digital copies are now available online!
Donation of missing years welcome!
