Preservation of Regional History
March 26, 2011

The Santa Monica: Preservation of Regional History workshop will be held at the Santa Monica Main Public Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd. in the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium on Saturday March 26 at 1:00 p.m.

The workshop will discuss the preservation of regional history through local resources including the library’s digital collections archive “Imagine Santa Monica” and the Santa Monica History Museum collections. The program presents an overview of both the library and museum collections and highlights the opening of the new Santa Monica History Museum.

As the library campus now includes the Main Library and the Santa Monica History Museum, it provides both virtual access and a wonderful physical space for regional history in Santa Monica. The library and museum collections have a wealth of materials including photographs, maps, newspapers, documents, letters, and ephemera which preserve the history of the Santa Monica Bay area including the City of Santa Monica and surrounding communities such as Pacific Palisades, Venice and Malibu.
