Acquisition Source
While conducting research for his book "McNab - The Township", Peter Hessel created many files which he donated to the ADA in 1994 along with other historical information about the Arnprior area. This formed the basis of the Peter Hessel collection.

The collection consists of many original documents as well as photocopied material and newspaper clippings pertaining to the history of Arnprior, McNab and Braeside.

Photograph Album H10.02
The collection also consists of a photograph album (1930 - 1990) containing 294 colour photographs and 74 B&W photographs which was compiled by Peter Hessel.

History / Biography
The Madawaska Book Club was formed in Arnprior in 1962. Originally a member of the Canadian Home Reading Union, the group decided to drop its membership in the Union in 1991. Funds were used to buy books and magazines for use in Arnprior & District Library, the Grove nursing home and the Arnprior & District Hospital. Also, the group sent parcels of books to schools where funds were not available for a library. The book club held monthly meetings beginning in September where readings of poetry, book reports and exchanges followed regular business meetings. Often, the book club invited guest authors to their meetings where they would discuss the research, background and intent of the novel with the members.
Acquisition Source
Donated by the president Gillian Danby and Diane Brearly (secretary) in 2000. Accrual January 2013
Scope and Content
