Digging Deeper is Historic Seattle’s multi-session program designed to provide attendees with behind-the-scenes insight to primary research materials in the many archives and libraries in Seattle and King County. Each month we visit a selected archive or library and receive expert advice as to what is available and how staff can assist with research projects. This program helps you to explore buildings, architecture, and history. By the time you are through, you will want to attend one or more of the events during National Archives Month in Seattle in October 2016.
On Saturday April 9, we’re welcomed to the Seattle Theatre Group Historical Theatres Library (STGHTL), which preserves and makes available historic materials from three historic theaters in Seattle: The Paramount, The Moore, and Neptune. The project began early in February 2011, at the direction of the Volunteer Council. It required the gathering, sorting, documenting, cataloging, and preserving over 100 years of historical data. In addition a photo gallery of historic pictures of the three theatres adorn the walls of the library.
On March 1, 2012 the STGHTL officially opened to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This historic theatre library is located in the Paramount Theatre’s Office Tower adjacent to the theatre. Librarian, Marian Thrasher, will provide us with a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the library. In addition, we’ll be treated to a tour of the Paramount Theatre.
