Archives Month Features Open House and Tour of Library

Oct. 7, 2008 – The Territorial Archives of the Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums will host a public open house and tour on St. Croix from 1-3 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Florence Williams Public Library's Caribbean Collection and Archives Research Room (3rd floor).
Division staff members responsible for the territory's archives, records and information management, and special collections will conduct the tours, which will include a behind-the-scenes look at original historical documents and research resources. The public is invited to view seldom-displayed historical records, photographs and collections and to learn more about the territorial archives.
Tours will run continuously and are free of charge; advance registration is not required. The library may be accessed by the staircase either from the King Street entrance descending the stairs, or on the first level from the rear parking lot.
The tour is one of many activities being sponsored by the Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums in celebration of October 2008 as Virgin Islands Archives Month.
Archives Month 2008 is a time to focus on Virgin Islands records of enduring value, and to enhance public recognition for the people and programs in our Territory that are responsible for maintaining our community's vital historical records.
