Community Projects

This page highlights collaborative work between the James E. Brooks Library and the greater central Washington community. As part of Central Washington University’s ongoing mission to engage and serve our greater community, the Archives and Special Collections Department works to preserve and offer access to local history collections. Many of these collections highlight the earliest visual history of Ellensburg and Kittitas County, as seen in the collections below.

Please contact or call (509) 963-1717 for more information.
