Happy New Year: 2014

2 Jan

Today the Arizona Historical Society Library & Archives is open once again after our holiday closures. 2014 is here and looking good already. We’ve been talking about resolutions around the library these days. Whether or not you make New Years resolutions, the end of the past year and the beginning of a new one is a good time to reflect on your personal goals. Although having big things to aspire to can be a great challenge, it’s also a good idea to make a few small, yet equally important resolutions that you are confident you can accomplish. You may never get to the gym again after January 24th, but maybe you CAN organize your garage, or identify and instigate better eating habits, or read the book you’ve got on your coffee table, or go on vacation and catch a big fish like the gal in the photograph below. Better yet, create some family goals that you can all work on together throughout the year. Whether it’s sitting down all together once a week for dinner or games, or making a promise not to leave your shoes in the middle of the kitchen where dad always trips over them, having family goals and the support to follow through on them can be helpful as well as bring the whole family together.

As a special new year treat, the Arizona Historical Society Library & Archives in Tucson will be open this Saturday, January 4th, 2014 from 10am-1pm by appointment only. If you would like to come in to do some research this Saturday please contact us directly via email: ahsref@azhs.gov and let us know when you’re coming during those hours and what you want to look at. Appointments can be made up till 4pm on Friday afternoon. You need to have an appointment and tell us what you want to look at to research on Saturday.

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.
