Our vault houses the “Nebraska Room”, a collection of materials about Nebraska and Valley. These special collections include books written about Nebraska or by Nebraska authors, items about the history of Valley, Valley High School (DC West High School) yearbooks, and records pertaining to the Valley Cemetery. Items in these collections assist researchers, those interested in family genealogy, and those interested in Nebraskan history.
