Welcome to Trent Valley Archives


As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve be assured that the safety of our members, employees and the public is our overriding priority.

In response to the elevated risks of the COVID-19 virus, we have suspended
general public access to our Carnegie Ave. location as of Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

Until further notice we will continue to staff our location and will respond to public enquiries via telephone and email.

Trent Valley Archives continues to closely monitor the situation including local, provincial and federal health guidelines, particularly those of Peterborough Public Health.

Further action and statements will be made promptly as required. In the meantime we wish everyone good health and encourage our mutual support.
