PRESERVING KALAMA'S HISTORY
The Kalama Public Library received a Washington Rural History grant in late 2017. The focus of the grant is to archive and preserve local history and cultural heritage. The grant enables historical photos and documents to be digitized and archived online, which will then be made available for public use. In future the images will be available through the City of Kalama website, the Kalama Library website and through Washingtonruralheritage.org. Since the first of the year, Library staff members have digitized over 200 images in fulfillment of the grant terms. The project will end August 2018.
Anyone who has historical photos or information that they would like to share is encouraged to call the Kalama Library. 360-673-4568
