or the Library, at: 253-863-1806
We’re OPEN:
Monday, 10 AM to 2 PM
Tuesday, 10 AM to 2 PM
Wednesday, 10 AM to 2 PM
Thursday, 10 AM to 2 PM

Happy Valentines Day!
We haven’t had much to cheer about lately, so we are very excited to let you know that we are now OPEN on Saturdays from 10 AM to 4 PM.

We are still required to social distance and wear face masks.  It makes for a great opportunity to browse the stacks alone.  Come in and see what’s new in our collection.  

 
We’re also excited to share some news from our friends at Tacoma Pierce County Genealogical Society.  The Spring Seminar information is out and you can read all about it and register at

We hope to see you there!
