The student drawings and other design components show us the aesthetics of the period during which they were created. Yearbooks also offer valuable information about local businesses through the advertisements printed in them.
A complete list of our collection of yearbooks can be found here (updated September 2013). Our yearbook collection is slowly growing! We're always looking for more yearbooks from Schenectady County public and private schools, from elementary school through college. Please contact the Librarian, Melissa Tacke, by phone at 518-374-0263, option 3, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in donating yearbooks.
Below are just a few images from yearbooks in our collection.

Rubber Company from the 1911 Schenectady High School SHUCIS. Both the literary magazine
and the yearbook contain several pages of advertisements.
|Whimsical drawings related to students at Schenectady Vocational High School printed in The Anvo, 1938.|
These drawings, attributed to "JL," were drawn by James Lemmie, a student in the commercial art course of the school.
