Native American Collection
The Muckleshoot Library’s Native American Collection is the largest concentration of comprehensive Native American materials in the King County Library System. Books, DVDs, video, maps and archival information are shelved in open stacks – you are free to browse.
The Muckleshoot Library’s Native American Collection contains
- Native American History (North America) from Native American, popular culture and government perspectives.
- Religious and cultural customs and norms
- Native American mythology
- Crafts and cookbooks
- Whulshootseed Language

While the archival information is for in-library viewing only, the Muckleshoot Library will send any reference materials to your local King County Library System branch library. Circulating items in the collection are checked out for the same loan period as other King County Library materials. Cataloged materials are listed in the King County Library System catalog. At the copy status screen, you will see Native American Collection directly above the Dewey Decimal call number.
