From Vision to Reality ... Visitors to the Municipal Archives and Municipal Library marvel at the beautiful marble lobby at 31 Chambers Street, but few have had the opportunity to experience the wealth of archival and library treasures preserved behind locked doors.
As a gateway to the Archives and the Library, the Center features:
Media Room - equipped with monitors for film and documentary screenings, orientation videos, and for patrons to research the Archives' unique film footage and audio collections.
Exhibitions - drawn from the rich resources of the Archives and Library, the Center features exhibitions highlighting the collections and interpreting themes and topics in city history.
Events - a downtown venue for author book-signings, lectures, and other happenings. Click here for more information.
Education Outreach - colleges and high schools are invited to bring students to the Center for orientation classes, presentations, and educational outreach activities.
