PNW Blog paid a flying visit last Friday to the Archives Fair, which was held for the first time in the dramatic setting provided by SPL’s Central Library. By all accounts, the event was even better attended than usual this year and deemed a real success. Kudos to the organizers and all participants! And come back soon, Hannah!
As previously mentioned, the annual Seattle Archives Fair, sponsored by the Seattle Area Archivists, will take place this Friday, October 30th, 2009, on level 10 of the Seattle Public Library’s Central Branch.
