About the Collection

Printed ephemera documents events that are often recorded nowhere else, making them a valuable resource to researchers. Our collection of ephemera concerns people, places, and events in the Santa Clara Valley, and dates back to the late 19th century.

The Digital Collection

The Ephemera Collection currently includes a representative selection of ephemera from the California Room. New images are added to the collection as they are digitized.
