Next week is Archives Awareness Week in Ontario, and the Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) and the Archives of Ontario (AO) are working together to help archives share information about their activities. There’s a list of events on the AAO’s website and the AO have produced this lovely poster to promote the week.
Here in Belleville, we will be celebrating the official opening of our new Community Archives and providing behind-the-scenes tours of the new facility. You can sign up in person at the archives’ front desk, or you can fill in an online form to book your place on a tour. There are eight tours available between 4th and 8th April, with a limit of ten people to each tour.
We look forward to welcoming you to our new space. We will be open for research in the week following Archives Awareness Week, starting Tuesday April 12th. Our regular opening hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 1pm to 4pm.
