What is the Yakima Memory project?
The Yakima Memory project is a cooperative effort between the Yakima Valley Regional Library and the Yakima Valley Museum. Funded by a grant through the Washington State Digital Images Initiative, the project involves the digitization of photographs in the Relander Collection at the Yakima Valley Regional Library and the Sundquist Research Library at the Yakima Valley Museum. For more information, please see our Project History page.
