Old yearbooks- where can I get a copy?

If you are looking for or hoping to find a past copy of an elementary, high school, military, or college yearbook- it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. Most people have no idea where to start or how to begin their search.

If you are like me- and my family, you have moved away from the town where you went to school or college and are now living in a different part of the state or country. You may have even lost touch with friends or acquaintances from your school years who might be able to help with your search or who may even have a copy of the yearbook or the information you are looking for.  

For this reason, we receive many phone calls and emails from people who are searching for a past edition of their school’s yearbook. They want to know if we have archived copies of the books we publish, if we can print one copy for them or if they can purchase an old book directly from us, the publisher.

When we receive these calls and emails, we explain via phone or email- due to limited storage space and the volume of yearbooks we publish on an annual basis it is or would be impossible warehouse or even store multiple volumes of each one of our current and past customers’ yearbooks over any extended period of time.

After having the above conversation, we offer a bit of direction and a few suggestions to aid the person we are speaking with in their search.

Below, you will find a list of some the direction or guidance we offer, when we are confronted with the question…. “I am looking for a yearbook from 1985, can you help?”  

  • Contact the School or School District - Many school districts or schools order extra copies of their yearbook specifically for the purpose of adding it to their yearbook archives. Contact the school district or school and ask permission to schedule a day to review old yearbook photos. Ask school officials if you may copy the pages or photos in the book. Additionally, inquire about how to purchase old yearbooks through the school.
  • Alumni Association- Reach out to your school and ask for the contact information of the person in charge of the alumni association at your former school. Asked to be added to the alumni email or mailing list which will give you access to all of association’s membership. This will allow you to reach out to members who have exactly what you are looking for.
  • Public Library- Contact the local public library in the town where your former school is located. Most libraries have a copy of the local school’s yearbook on hand. Many of them also have a yearbook archive the public has access to. 
  • Internet Search Engines- Use your favorite search engine and type in the name of your school or the person you are looking for. You may be surprised by the amount of information found on the web-sites listed.
  • Social Networking Sites- These forums can offer class or school news that you can use to contact old classmates and possibly locate friends, yearbooks and old photographs.
  • Internet Sites- These sites are loaded with informative articles to aid in your search for classmates, yearbooks and friends from the past. They may offer guidance and specific or general information to aid with your search.
  • Local Newspapers- Contact the local newspaper that serves the town you grew up or went to school in. Place a classified ad or display ad listing specifically what you are looking for. In addition to the paper of record for your town, today you will also have access to community newspapers which target specific people or business within the community.
  • Online Classified Web-Sites- Many online classified sites are available to use to aid you in your yearbook search. You will find global and also local classified sites that you can use to place an ad to buy a book and also search ads placed by others who are their selling books. If you place an ad, you can list the name of the school and the year you are looking for. You can be town or area specific with your listing, which means you can place an ad in a Pennsylvania area even if you are living in Washington.
  • Online Stores- You can use the search feature on your favorite online store. Type in the name of the school you are hoping to find. For example, I went to one of the large online retailers and typed the name of the high school I attended in their site’s search engine- “Liberty High School”. The results showed 233 books listed for sale with at school’s name.  Of course, not all of them were for my high school, but it is a great tool if you are in the market to find a past yearbook edition.
  • Online Auction Sites- if you are looking to purchase a copy of your yearbook, you just might find it listed for sale on your favorite online auction site.

I found a bunch of Wyoming yearbooks (like from University of Wyoming, Shoshone High School, Riverton High School, Lander High School) when I was online today looking for my old high school yearbook from Riverton High School. I found some old ones, but not the year I graduated (1990). I looked on Amazon and Ebay. Was really laughing as I saw some from across the country in Salem Massachusetts for a college for 1928 and Somerville Massachusetts for 1926. The examples of pictures were so funny. So, you can find them on the internet (original ones), but I also saw a lot that were reprinted and have paperback covers instead of the hardcovers like they really were.
