We are closed Thursday & Friday, November 28 & 29

We will be closed from Saturday, December 21 through Friday, December 27

The Archives Reading Room is open by appointment Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10am – 4pm. Appointments are required to allow time for the archivist to pull records and to make sure that there is enough space for researchers to work in the Archives. When the Archives is closed or the archivist is not available, a drop-in researcher may fill out a research request form with their contact information and the information that they are seeking. The archivist will contact them after reviewing their request.

To make an appointment to visit the Reading Room, contact Jennifer Blomqvist: 404.373.1088 x28 or
