The Coronado Historical Association's Research Library is YOUR place for research! 

For nearly 20 years, our Research Library has been a place to explore, learn, and understand the history and culture of the place we have made our home. Through the years, thousands of local and visiting researchers, community members, and students have used our library to research anything from the history of their homes to the biographies of Coronado residents.

If you make a gift today, here's what we'll do with it: 

  • $2,500 will fund computer and scanner workstations for local high school interns and volunteers to help digitize, catalog, and research collections.
  • $5,000 will furnish a stage-of-the art flat file research table that will provide a large working space for interns, volunteers and researchers.
  • $8,000 will retrofit existing research volunteer stations and add new furniture and UV filter shades. 

Help us reach our goal of $15,500 by June 30, 2018! 

Your support will allow us to purchase the necessary tools to upgrade this important community resource. Together, we can do it!
