The center is staffed by Office Manager Marilynn Moses. The rest of the Center is run by volunteers. It is located between the Okanogan County Historical Museum and the replica of the old Okanogan Fire Hall.

We offer comprehensive research, digitization, and archiving services and have been in operation for over 40 years.

Generally, there will be no fee for the first hour of assisted research as after the first hour the researcher will know if the research question cannot be answered or if the research will take longer. The patron will be notified in either case. Research services, photocopies, and postage are charged.
