Oneida Public Library


The Oneida Public Library’s Local History Room contains a noncirculating collection of over 1,560 books, pamphlets, maps and genealogical materials relating to the City of Oneida, Madison County, Oneida County and New York State. It also contains on microfilm Oneida City and Madison County newspapers dating back to 1846, a complete set of published directories of Oneida City and surrounding communities and U.S. Census data for Madison County from 1850 to 1930.

The Local History Room is available for research during regular library operating hours. (See Library Hours & Directions.) Genealogical and historical queries by e-mail, letter or phone are welcome, but there is a suggested donation to the Oneida Public Library of $5.00 for each request requiring research by library staff members.
