October's Archives Month is right around the corner - have you checked out what's in store?

Washington State Archives Month (WSAM) is an annual statewide opportunity each October to engage a range of audiences by communicating the value of our historical records, to publicize and raise awareness of the many ways these collections enrich our lives, and to recognize those who preserve and manage our communities' historical records, whether at archives repositories, museums, libraries, within companies, or at non-profit institutions.
This year’s theme is “Reconnect, Converge, Rediscover” and organizations across the state are invited to participate. Suggestions for activities, whether virtually or in-person, include:
Open houses, exhibitions with archives, panel discussions, film screenings, walking tours, and partnering with other institutions and archives for collaborative events. Check out the WSAM website to see previous programs and events.
If you would like for your activity to be further promoted by the Archives Month Committee, please complete the form.
