The Longview Room

The Longview Room houses the local history collection of the Longview Public Library and is located on the library mezzanine. Newspaper clippings, maps, pamphlets, books about Washington (in particular the Southwest part of the State), clippings about the 1980 Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption, local yearbooks, and a large collection of photographs of Longview's founding in the 1920's make up the main parts of the collection. You can view a growing collection of these materials online in our Digital Archive.
