The Council Bluffs Library Special Collections contains books, photographs, documents and other items relating to Council Bluffs history.

A large part of the collection consists of the Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil archives. This archive is made up of newspaper clippings, photographs and 1000s of photograph negatives.

The purpose of this site is to share these valuable resources with the public. This is an on going project, so please check back for added content.
