October is Archives Month. All across the country events will be held to celebrate archives and Virginia is no exception. Since 2002, archivists from around the Commonwealth have participated in this celebration by creating posters and holding special events to promote the amazing materials found in cultural institutions across the state. This is a chance for us to share what we do with others and get the word out about wonderful collections that enrich all of our lives. We invite you to join the celebration. The Library of Virginia hosts a calendar of Archives Month events for the state. You can also find all of the images from this year’s poster on Flickr, as well as all of the posters from previous years. Of course we invite you to visit archival institutions this month and any month of the year because Archives are for Virginians!
