The Seattle Public Library Special Collections (Video Documentaries) October 30, 2017 In 2017 I was lucky enough to tour The Seattle Room and The Special Collections at The Seattle Public Library as I made a few short documentaries. I directed, shot and edited these after numerous interviews. Learn about the Potlatch festival that happened in Seattle in the early 20th century and see some of the related items you can find in The Seattle Collection. Learn about the genealogy resources available at the Central Library and online from two of SPL genealogy librarians. Learn about The Seattle Collection and some of the items in the Seattle Room, including yearbooks from every high school in Seattle.
