Our local history collection at Upland Public Library contains a vast array of non-circulating materials that show the rich history of Upland and the surrounding communities. We have records dating back to the late 1800s, when the city of Upland was known as North Ontario or Magnolia; the city of Upland was later incorporated in 1906. Some of the rich materials included in our collection are photographs, newspapers and magazines, oral histories, school yearbooks, and local business and city documents and directories.
The Upland Public Library's digital collection at California Revealed consists of texts, images, and audio recordings from the 1910s to 2020s. The collection includes both recordings and transcripts of oral interviews, as well as an extensive run of local newspapers such as The Upland News.
