The Research Library

Research Library

The research library and archives are located in the Burrows House Museum. It is open Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesdays and Wednesdays by appointment.

The library houses thousands of photographs, documents, maps, and records pertaining to local and regional topics. Some fees apply.

The library provides the following services:

  • Research assistance on the history of the central Oregon coast
  • Photographic reproduction
  • Photocopying of records, maps and photographs subject to the condition of the materials
  • Referral service to other repositories

The Log Cabin will reopen after renovations as a research library and archive storage facility open to the public. Demand for research assistance and a growing collection of photographs and research materials have necessitated the move to a larger space.
