Heritage Quest Research Library

Welcome to Heritage Quest Research Library!

HQRL front door
  Heritage Quest Research Library is a nonprofit genealogy library in Sumner, Washington, managed and staffed entirely by volunteers. HQRL's collection includes books (10,000 titles), and microfiche; this facility also houses a bookstore where you can purchase genealogy books, Flip-Pal® with accessories, family tree forms, software and supplies.
  Benefits of HQRL  membership  - why pay for individual data base subscriptions at home when an HQRL membership pays for six genealogy data bases for you to access at our library.
  The Heritage Quest Research Library is in downtown Sumner, WA at 1007 Main Street or call (253) 863-1806. Our volunteers can help you get started researching your ancestors and show you genealogy forms to capture all the information. Consider taking a class with us or pay for a membership to access multiple genealogy data bases from our library computers.
  We are open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Monday through Saturday. The library is closed on Sunday.
We hope to see you soon!
HQRL will be closed if the Sumner School District is closed for inclement weather.
