Welcome to the Oak Ridge Public Library Digital Collections, Oak Ridge, Tennessee

About this collection

The Oak Ridge Room at Oak Ridge Public Library was dedicated in September 1986 as part of the Library’s celebration of Tennessee’s Homecoming ’86. This unique collection was established to gather, catalog, and preserve the records and history of the “Secret City,” and to provide assistance to the public in researching Oak Ridge history. Special collections, documents, reports, and artifacts reveal what life was like in the 1940’s when Oak Ridge was a brand new town built to government wartime specifications. Current information about our city government and issues important to citizens today are also included.

 

In addition to historic photograph collections, the Oak Ridge Room also contains telephone directories, maps, floor plans, blueprints, and a compilation of early atomic energy history. This digital collection highlights many of the popular, informative, and unique items at the Library.
