The Irving Archives was established in 1981 as a part of the city's Records Management Division within the City Secretary's Office. In October 1996, the Archives was moved from the City Secretary's Office to the Irving Public Library. It is located at at 801 W. Irving Blvd.
The Archives' holdings encompass the political, municipal, and social history of the city. Collections include material relating to the history of the city, its schools, churches, clubs and businesses, as well as the history of its predecessor communities, founding families, and notable residents.
Holdings date from the mid-nineteenth century to the present and are made up of photographs, scrapbooks, paper records, newspapers and other publications, oral history tapes, videotapes, digital records, and small artifacts.
