Thanksgiving

28 Nov

Today is Thanksgiving and the archives is closed in observance, both today Thursday, November 28 and tomorrow Friday, November 29. Today we’re sharing a fun find from one of our manuscript collections, MS 1183 Ronstadt Family Postcard Correspondence. Archivist Caitlin Lampman chose this particular postcard because of the adorable turkey border that surrounds the picture.  The archivists here at AHS hope that your Thanksgiving meal was as abundant and delicious as the pile of veggies this card shows and full of moments to reflect on the things you are glad to have.

Thanksgiving Week Archives Closures

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. 🙂

Announcement: Upcoming Library Closure!

16 May

This post is to alert you, our valued patrons, that we will be closing the library and archives on Thursday, June 6 and Friday, June 7 to do some work on major projects. Remember what happened the last time the library was closed? This time we’re working on changes behind the scenes, so you won’t be able to actually see them out in the Reading Room. The changes we’re making will make it easier for us to access some of our collections and are also focused on improving the use of space in our stacks so we have more room for future collections. However these projects are so large that we need all hands on deck for a couple of days in order to complete them in a timely manner.

We definitely do apologize as we know this may cause some inconvenience on the part of our researchers, but we think we’ll all be happy and excited about these changes. So please plan your research with the knowledge that we’ll be closed these two days: Thursday, June 6 and Friday, June 7, 2013.  (And don’t worry, we’ll remind you again when it gets a bit closer to June). Thank you for your patience!
