Looking for space - Jo-Anne Huber
It's been eleven months since the downtown Sumner fire that transformed HQRL from its storefront to a virtual organization. Since then we have been very active with real estate agents trying to locate a space suitable for our 16,000 book collection, tall shelving and computers. We left the 2400 square foot facility with the contents getting cleaned and going into storage. Now we need to fit into space that we can afford. Do you know of anything that is ADA compliant, seismic suitable, and costs $2/sq. ft? Please give us a call at 253-863-1806.
We also will gladly accept donations at hqrl.com - see DONATE button.  thank you.

Director's Update - Jo-Anne Huber
The Management Team is working to solicit support from our members. First and foremost, we need the participation of our members more than ever. We are in the process of putting together a couple of gatherings that we can use to listen to the needs, concerns, and directions our members want us to go. After all, this is your genealogy library.
The first brainstorming session will be held at the Sumner Public Library on Thursday, June 8, 2023, in the meeting room from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. We need your ideas and commitment. Please join us for this worthwhile opportunity.
The second will be a pot-luck picnic at Loyalty Park, 1400 Park Street, Sumner, WA , 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM., Friday, July 21, 2023.HQRL will provide the hot dogs and buns. Let’s gather, celebrate being together, brainstorm a clear future and move forward.
We hope you will join us in these efforts to keep HQRL alive and well.
Sincerely,  Jo-Anne Huber
