Walter Johnson Memorial Library

Cultural Resource Center

The Cultural Resource Center (CRC) serves as the in-house reading library for the museum and includes access to over 19,000 books and periodicals maintained in the stacks as well as via the collections catalog database of searchable titles, authors, and subjects.

Patrons may also access genealogy resources in the CRC, ranging from bygdebok volumes to Nordic-American immigrant family biographies and online databases (Arkivdigital.net; Islendingbok.is; Ancestry.com), to conduct their own research on family history.

We have temporarily paused research appointments to the Cultural Resource Center due to COVID-19, but if you have a research question related to library materials, or if you would like to be included on a list to hold an appointment for a future date, please contact Alison DeRiemer by email or phone at 206.789.5707 x7013.
