 Representatives from The Museum of the San Fernando Valley participated in the 6th Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar on October 22nd. Organized by L.A. as Subject, the gathering was held at the University of Southern California's Doheny Library. The highly attended event attracts those involved in scholarly research, ordinary folks interested in history, educators and journalists. The event represents the second year of involvement by The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.  Over 80 archives were represented.

One of the important missions of your Museum is to increase the awareness of the history, culture and art of the greater San Fernando Valley. Participating in community events from Glendale to Calabasas, giving talks, creating mobile exhibits and yes... even our blog and website are ways we are reaching out. Participating in the events of the L.A. Heritage Alliance and being part of the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar are examples of our hands-on involvement.
