We are very proud of our large collection of genealogy related books and materials. We hope you will visit us to see what we have. Our library has a large collection of research related materials for the U.S. as well as many foreign countries.
We are especially proud of our Kittitas County genealogy resource materials. They include not only books but card indexes for such things as county obituaries, births, marriages, deaths, and school information.
