LA as Subject's 4th Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar
The Glendale Public Library will be participating in the 4th Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar, presented by LA as Subject and hosted by the USC Libraries on October 17th. The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Davidson Executive Conference Center on the USC campus.
LA as Subject, an alliance of libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions dedicated to preserving and celebrating Los Angeles's rich history and culture, describes the Archives Bazaar thusly:
Southern California history comes alive in exhibits by local historical collections and archives. Browse rare collections, consult with experts, and learn about L.A. history, family genealogy, and much more. The annual bazaar also features educational programs, discussions about history with local authors, and documentary films about the hidden stories of L.A.'s diverse neighborhoods and communities.
Those looking to volunteer at the Bazaar (in return for free parking and food!) can find volunteer information by clicking here.
The complete program, with parking information, a list of participating institutions, and a schedule of panels, film screenings, and author events is available here.
