The Pioneers Association has accumulated a book collection of over 800 items.


Our Library focuses on Reference, Family History, and bound articles and narratives directly or indirectly relevant to the aims of our Association.

We also hold books relating to the history of the Association and those individuals who played a major part in its creation and development.


This is a significant collection of books, publications, pamphlets, posters and history folders in one location covering an important part of South Australia's unique history.
