The Monash Public Library Service's local history collections are held in the Monash Federation Centre. The Centre is also the home of the History Monash Inc. (formerly Oakleigh & District Historical Society), its collections and administration.

The Federation Centre is located in the historic precinct in Warrawee Park at 3 Atherton Road, Oakleigh 3166 adjoining the Oakleigh Pioneer Memorial Cemetery.

Access to the library's local history collection is available by appointment and consists of books, bound newspapers, and microfiche.

Our digital local history collection search is not available at this time as we are undergoing maintenance of the collection. We apologise for any inconvenience.  A microfiche reader is available at the Glen Waverley Library.

Please contact Oakleigh Library on (03) 9563 4138 and ask to speak to the Local History Librarian to arrange a booking to view our collection.

For access to the History Monash Inc. (Oakleigh & District Historical Society) collections, please email info@historymonash.org.au
