Joining in the festivities marking the 100th anniversary of Northridge, an exhibit of historic postcards greets visitors to the Northridge Branch of LA Public Library.
Fred Berk, Librarian of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley regularly arranges for displays of historic San Fernando Valley postcards and other interesting Valley memorabilia. To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Northridge, Porter Ranch and historic Zelzah, Fred placed these interesting items, now on display at the Northridge Branch Library.

Great books are flying off the shelves at the Northridge Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. The Library has convenient on site parking at 9051 Darby Street.
From our inception, The Museum of the San Fernando Valley has concentrated on mobile and community-based exhibits. The nearly hour’s drive between San Fernando and Calabasas, makes traveling to an exhibit a genuine burden for many. So, your Museum takes history and culture to the people where they live, shop and go to school.
In 2008, The Museum’s Librarian, Fred Berk began the presentation of historic, Valley-related postcards and related memorabilia in branches of the Los Angeles Public Library. The Museum’s motive here is simple: to keep the San Fernando Valley’s history before our 1,800,000 residents on an on-going basis.
