Closed Mondays

21 Nov

Starting January 5, 2015, the Library and Archives in Tucson will be closed on Mondays. The new reading room schedule will be Tuesday-Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.

We will be using Mondays to work on large-scale processing projects, complete grant projects, extend our outreach efforts, and begin an Archives Ambassador program. We will be sharing information about some of our projects here.

We appreciate your understanding as we work behind-the-scenes to make the AHS Library and Archives in Tucson better for everyone and we look forward to seeing you Tuesdays through Fridays in the new year!

Upcoming December Closures

4 Dec

Greetings everyone! Thanksgiving is over and the stores have been slammed with Christmas decorations. Here at AHS we’ve been prepping for our fun holiday party this Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 10am-4pm. The archivists will be helping out and doing a simple, old-fashioned photo booth throughout the day.

What we really need to tell you, is that there are several closures coming up in the month of December. We thought we’d post them here so you can plan your research time ahead.

The Library and Archives in Tucson will be closed Friday, December 20, 2013. The archives staff will be heading to a day of first aid and CPR certification training at the Tempe location.

The Library and Archives in Tucson will also be closed in observance of the Christmas and New Years holidays from December 24, 2013 through January 1, 2014.

25 Nov

This week the Library and Archives in Tucson will be closed on Thursday, November 28 and Friday, November 29 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The Arizona History Museum, however, will be open to the public on Friday November 29th.

Please plan your research days accordingly and enjoy the holiday the best way you know how…whether it’s with turkey and gravy or macaroni and cheese. 🙂
