Library and Archives

Central Avenue in Medford. The Jackson County Library District partners with the Southern Oregon Historical Society to ensure the public has access to SOHS's unique collection of documents, photographs, maps, films, and other materials.  User fees are waived for all Jackson County residents thanks to this partnership. 

The Library is staffed by a professional Archivist, assisted by volunteers who combine their knowledge of local history with knowledge of SOHS's collection.

Our online indexes provide access to many SOHS resources.
