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 2015.

On June 6, we visit the Tacoma Public Library’s Northwest Room located in the downtown Main Library’s original 1903 Carnegie Library. The Northwest Room is home to the Library’s collection of materials on Tacoma and the Pacific Northwest, genealogy, photography, newspapers and rare books. The Northwest Room is a selective repository for the archives of the City of Tacoma, and provides public access to many local and regional planning documents and environmental impact statements.
