The Susan J. Hoffman Local History Fund benefits the Grace Schmidt Room of Local History. By donating to this fund you will support local history collections and resources, such as purchasing documents, maps, books, and photographs; GSR furnishings and equipment; special projects, and more.

Susan J. Hoffman joined the staff of Kitchener Public Library in 1976. In 1984, the Waterloo Historical Society partnered with the library to open the Grace Schmidt Room of Local History. Along with honouring librarian and local historian Grace Schmidt, who had retired in 1980, it spoke to the high regard the local history collections enjoyed in the Region of Waterloo.

In 2006, the Waterloo Historical Society created this special fund to honour Ms. Hoffman, in recognition of her many years of dedicated service to the Waterloo Historical Society and Kitchener Public Library.
