The library houses a growing collection of genealogical resources.

GeneLibrary2013 The Genealogy Area is located on the third floor of the Downtown library and has a special emphasis on Spokane, Eastern Washington and the surrounding states. We also have several tools available online to assist with regional research.

Please ask a librarian if you have any questions about genealogy at the library. We would be happy to help familiarize you with the resources we have available.
