Clarence Regional Library now hosts one of the largest collections of north coast history resources after the generous donation from local Historian and genealogist Nola Mackey.

This collection of books, maps, photos, and ephemera has been collected over the last 50 years –  it is a treasure trove of Northern NSW history.

For family historians there is a broad range of genealogical resources available.

The Mackey Archive Collection is available for members of the community interested in exploring local history and heritage.

The Mackey Archive Reading Room is located in the Grafton Library and is open Monday to Thursday 10:00 – 3:00 (by appointment only)

To visit please book at least one working day in advance by calling (02) 6641 0111.

We need to receive your request before 12pm on the day before your visit.
