Chicago Open Archives 2017

"People are hungry for stories.  It's part of our very being.  Storytelling is a form of history, of immortality too.  It goes from one generation to another."   ~ Studs Terkel

Celebrate Archives Month throughout October with Chicago area libraries, archives, and museums during Chicago Open Archives (COA).  This year's theme is Hidden Stories in the Archives.  Along with the events such as behind-the-scenes tours and lectures, Chicago Area Archives will be highlighting our Spotlight events.  Visit multiple Spotlight events, collect clue sheets, and play an online trivia game in November.  Check out the calendar below for more information.  What hidden stories will you find and what stories will you tell?
