Programs Celebrating Archives Month

This afternoon we are hosting our annual Behind-the-Scenes Tour.  We are pleased to announce that all available slots have been filled for this once-a-year tour for individual members of the public.  Although we offer pre-arranged tours for groups throughout the year (ideal size 5 to 15 people), we began the tradition of celebrating Archives Month in this fashion when the BDC relocated to larger quarters on the 2nd floor here in the 311 Scott Street library facility.  To schedule a group tour, contact gracec@bcgov.net or 255-6446.  We are booking tours for 2014 now.

We are hosting an archives related workshop on November 7th to celebrate the national release of The Other Mother by local author, Teresa Bruce.  Ms. Bruce extensively used the Byrne Miller Papers housed here in the BDC to place her memories of Mrs. Miller into historical context and to illustrate her monograph. Space is limited so please sign up sooner rather than later if you are interested in learning how to fashion your own memoirs so that others will want to read them.
