Open Doors Project

The Open Doors Project (supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund) began in 2008. Our aim has been to promote the collections held at St.Helens Local History and Archives Library so that more people can understand and explore their heritage.

Our online catalogue contains over 4,000 images and 88,000 catalogue entries which can help the public unlock the history of St.Helens.

'Fond Memories of St.Helens'

The other important strand of the project has been a comprehensive and wide-ranging programme of outreach and promotional activities in the St.Helens area. Our Outreach Officer, Tom Preston, has delivered numerous talks to illustrate the holdings of the Local History and Archives Library (under the banner 'Fond Memories of ...') .
