In 2008, Solvay Union Free School District gifted some of their archives to Solvay Public Library. Access to the collection is more available at the Library and the District wanted to take advantage of the Library staff’s archival expertise and the secure, environmentally protected local history room.

An index of the school collection.
The Library’s Local History Subject Files has clippings, newsletters, and other papers about the school. Scroll down to “School” in the index.

The collection also has most of the Solvay Bearcat yearbooks that can be found on the OCPL online catalog by typing “Solvay High School” as a keyword. This search will also bring up items of related interest. Yearbooks may not be checked out, but staff can scan or photocopy pages upon request.

Some of the District Newsletter “Solvay Sentinel” are in the collection.
