Welcome!

Welcome to the online catalogue of archives and local history books, maps, photos etc. that are held at Solihull Central Library.


This catalogue isn't yet a complete list of everything we have - it's very much a work in progress. So far, it mainly includes details of:

  • building plans 1880-1926;
  • about fifty per cent of the photographs we hold;
  • books and articles published since 2007;
  • and brief details of most of our archive collections.

All our local history books at Solihull Central Library and at all our community libraries are also included in the main library catalogue, which you can search by author/title.
