Recommendations for Donating VFA Photos/Items

I have created a page on my website to encourage people to donate copies of old photos to their club, but who is collecting material for the clubs that no longer exist?

I know some local libraries have collections? Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks lauschie. Although Local history groups do a lot of good work, it can actually be quite difficult as a user to get material from them, and I was hoping that there was a central place.

Most societies are only open for a few hours each week, on a weekday. For example Port Melbourne Historical Society is only open Tuesday 10am - 1pm each week. It can also be expensive and time consuming get to the various locations, pay to copy material etc. Most local history groups often have little time for football as there is so much else oth there.

I was hoping that the VFL or AFL would collect VFA, VAFA, Country football etc, but it is not so.
