Welcome to the Masonic Library & Museum
The Grand Lodge Library contains over 30,000 books, photos and documents. They are uniquely organized by a Masonic catalog system. The library has over 700 linear feet of shelf space for browsing. Books are available for checkout by members of the masonic community. There are satellite libraries distributed geographically throughout Washington.
Note: Our library is currently undergoing some updates! If you would like to inquire about the availability of a book, or make an appointment to visit the library, contact Washington Masonic Charities at (844) 288-3531 during business hours.
We can also be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. Our library is staffed by volunteers, so please be patient!

Donations of Books and Objects to the Museum
Due to limited space we can only accept items that are unique to the history of the Grand Jurisdiction of Washington.
Prior to visiting the Library and Museum to make a donation, we ask that you first contact one of the volunteers or the Executive Director to discuss the possible donation. Please do not give items to the Grand Lodge of Washington to pass on to the Library and Museum. Call ahead at (253) 442-2505, or send an email.
We reserve the right to not accept a donation to the collection if it does not fit our collection priorities, or if we cannot take care of it properly. Donate items are not automatically placed on display. We also reserve the right to sell, loan, or trade items in the collection if they are duplicates or do not fit our collections priorities, unless restrictions on use have been made in writing at the time of the acceptance of the donation. All proceeds from books or objects in the collection that are sold will be used for the upkeep and furtherance of the mission of the Washington Masonic Library and Museum.
