The Davenport Public Library serves as the officially designated archives for the City of Davenport. Some of the City's historical records have been transferred to the Special ollections to provide better preservation of and access to these materials. Some major collections of City records include Parks Department Records, City Council minutes and proceedings; Davenport Bridge Commission records and minutes, and Davenport Levee Commission records. Davenport Building permits dating from about 1923 to about 1970 have been microfilmed and are also available. Archive collections for which finding aids have been created are listed below.
