On June 21, 2018, our presenter will be Riva Dean; her talk is titled "The Northwest Room at Spokane Public Library." Ms. Dean is the Northwest Room Librarian, where she has been for almost ten years. Prior to her position for Spokane Public Library, she worked for 15 years at the Arizona Historical Society in Tucson and a brief period with the National Park Service archives. She is a certified archivist and holds a MLS from the University of Arizona and a MA in history from Central Washington University.
Riva will be talking about the resources in the Northwest Room. In addition to describing the local history resources which many of you may have used, she will talk about some of the library’s treasures. The Northwest Room’s closed stacks include photographs, manuscripts and rare books relating to the Northwest. The vault also includes the Fuller collection, a collection of rare books collected by George Fuller, Spokane’s first librarian."
