The State Library of Pennsylvania collects historical Pennsylvania city directories in print and microform formats. These directories can be used for family history research, local history research and other purposes. The link on this page is to a directory of our city directory holdings. Please ask at the Reference Desk in the Main Reading Room (Room 102) for help to retrieve these items.
