Join us on October 2, 2010 for a chance to explore the California State Archives and learn about our extensive collection of documents and artifacts that allow us to understand the history of California. A diverse group of local archival organizations and repositories will host display tables that highlight prominent artifacts, photographs, and documents from their collections. This annual event is a great opportunity for the public to learn about archives, the preservation of historical records, and to celebrate Archives Month in California.
•Talk to archivists from various local repositories and see displays of rarely–seen documents and artifacts.
•View a recently installed exhibit.
•Take a tour of the State Archives.
Visitors can take Light Rail to the Archives Plaza stop. Or if you drive, park free in the parking lot located across the street from the Archives entrance. Parking is available on a first come first served basis.
