Regional History Department

The Jeanne Lane Moritz Regional History Department of the Community Library in Ketchum, Idaho, is a resource, like a national park or a wilderness area. We preserve the history of the Wood River Valley to aid visitors and researchers in their understanding of the land and the people of the area.  The Department was established in 1982 as a research and resource center. It is also a depository for the preservation and long-term storage of two-dimensional historical materials relating to the Alturas and Blaine County regions of Idaho.  These materials include books, oral history interviews, diaries, letters, official reports, photographs, ephemera, manuscripts, newspapers on microfilm, DVDs and videos, and other related materials.  The purpose of the department is to support research and enrich the experience of our visitors.
Through generous grants from foundations and individuals, we in the Regional History Department are preparing to embark on our journey into the digital age. Projects are underway to make more and more of our materials available online.  In the near future we will be digitizing the newspapers printed around the turn of the 20th Century. We will also be refining our digital photo gallery to enhance user accessibility.
