Every year the Archivists Round Table of Metrpolitan New York organizes a week of lectures, tours, workshops and open houses at cultural institutions around the city and calls it, fittingly, Archives Week.  The Brooklyn Collection will be participating in the festivities this year, with an open house and exhibit tour on Monday, October 7th, from 6 - 8pm

Like the sign says, "Library tours start here"

The event will include an introduction to our collections and programs, including the school outreach initiative, Brooklyn Connections. Visitors will also tour the exhibition "Brooklyn Public Library: An Open Book", which is on display throughout the Central Library and is drawn from materials in the Brooklyn Collection. Light refreshments will be served. The event is limited to 40 guests; please RSVP to Ivy Marvel at to confirm your attendance.


Location: Brooklyn Public Library, 2nd Floor Balcony at Central Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, NY.
