Voting time: December Library jewels

by Brian Zylstra | December 12th, 2012

If your thoughts are focused on shopping, candy canes, vacation or something else related to the holiday season, here is a fun, quick diversion for you: the online poll for our December Library jewels.

As we do monthly, we’re featuring three rare, cool or interesting collections or items found in our State Library. This month’s contestants are:
1) Washington Territory Volunteer papers
2) Collection of documents of 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition Commission
3) An 1893 telephone book for much of Western Washington

Once you’ve pondered this historical power trio, choose your fave using the online poll below. The poll closes Monday at noon, so don’t forget to vote!

What is your favorite December Library jewel?

  • 1893 telephone book for Western Washington (46%)
  • Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition Commission documents (28%)
  • Washington Territory Volunteer papers (26%)

Total Voters: 50
