We’re Still Here! We are happy to announce that while the library has received damage from the fire and the entire contents are out for cleaning, we are still here. Many of you have been following us through personal connections, phone calls, connections with some of the library volunteers or the latest newsletter. We wanted everyone to know that we are still a viable genealogical resource and that we have not given up.
The library space at 1007 Main Street in Sumner Washington has been given over to the building owner from whom we rented the unit. They will be doing extensive repairs to the space due to the fire next door. Those repairs may take as long as a year.
What that means for us, is that we are now tasked with finding another space for our library and bookstore. You can help us in that endeavor by keeping an eye on what’s happening in your neighborhood. We will continue to keep you informed as we move forward in our search for a new home.
We will continue to offer ZOOM classes on a monthly basis. Our Beginning Genealogy “A” class will be held on January 5, 2023, and on January 19, 2023, Caron Prima-Brennan will speak on “Where Did I Put Great-Grampa? Organizing for Genealogists”.
We hope you will continue to follow us through our webpage at www.hqrl.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find us on Facebook.
At the beginning of October, we celebrated our 40th anniversary and we certainly hope to celebrate 40 more.
