About meThe Local History Collection of the Shaker Heights Public Library is housed in the Moreland Room on the first floor of the Main Library.

Material in this collection is primarily concerned with the history of the City of Shaker Heights and the development of the community within the greater context of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.

The Moreland Room Local History Collection contains:

• Books, photographs, videos, and other sources of information on the history, institutions, and personalities of Shaker Heights;

• The Shaker Authors Collection--works by current and former residents of Shaker Heights;

• The archives of the Shaker Heights League of Women Voters and Shaker Life Magazine;

• Blueprints of many Shaker Heights homes, on microfilm;

• Shaker Heights High School Yearbooks from 1922-present;

• and much more.

Materials in the Local History Collection do not circulate and must be used in the library. This collection is supported in part by generous donations to the Sheldon "Skip" Baumoel Fund.

About my libraryThe Shaker Heights Local History Collection LibraryThing library includes works by Shaker Authors (authors who grew up in and/or make/made their home in Shaker Heights, Ohio), books on the Shakers, books on Shaker Heights and Cleveland history, architecture, business, and education, community cookbooks, and works of authors who participated in our annual Local Author and Book Fairs.
