Our collection of around 10,000 photographs captures life in the Blacktown City area from the 1880s to the present day. We are currently scanning our collection to preserve it for the future and to make available on the Blacktown Memories webpage and Blacktown City Libraries catalogue.

Donating Photographs

The Library is keen to add more photographs and videos to Blacktown Memories. Donation of original or digital photographs is preferred. We can also accept temporary loans of photographs to allow us to digitise them and then return them to you. We need as much information about each photograph or video as possible (who, what, when, where and why). A donation form will need to be completed, which covers important information such as ownership and copyright.

If you have photographs or videos of the Blacktown City area that you think might be suitable for Blacktown Memories, we would love to hear from you. Please email us.
