The closure of the Advertiser's Vincent Street office in December meant finding a new home for our records.

Bound volumes, research files, photographs and special publications were among the items donated to Cessnock Library in the week before Christmas.

Local Studies librarian Kimberly O'Sullivan said the library was pleased to accept such a significant donation.

"These important records have now become part of the Local Studies collection and will be available for researchers to use," Ms O'Sullivan said.

"We thank the Advertiser for this donation which has ensured their records have been preserved."

Anyone who is interesting in viewing the Local Studies collection can arrange an appointment by calling the library on 4993 4399.

And while our Cessnock office has closed, readers are reminded that the Advertiser will continue to be published every Wednesday, and we can still be contacted on 4990 1244.
