Archives Week – October 1 – 7

Archives Week is soon approaching and we have some fun events planned at the Musée!

Currently, we have a scrapbook exhibit that features archives from our holdings.  Don’t miss out, the exhibit will be on until October 21.

This Saturday, we have an activities day planned for families entitled, Show-and-Tell, Games and Tours: Families in the Archives.  We invite you to bring in your scrapbooks to discuss with others.  We will have a few games and crafts for families.  And our archivist is giving behind-the-scenes tours of the archives.

Finally, on October 4, 7 – 8:30 pm, we are holding a workshop on Preserving Your Family Photos.  At the workshop we invite you to bring in your family photographs and our archivist will help you with storing your photos so they last for a long time.  Pre-registration is required and there is a $10 fee per participant. 

To sign-up for the workshop and for more information on archives events, call 780-459-1528.  We hope you join us and explore the Musée archives.
