For one night only, discover hidden treasures from the Othmer Library of Chemical History as we open our vaults in celebration of American Archives Month.

This year we’re exploring the golden days of Mad Men with vintage science ads. Visitors are encouraged to dress the part in 1960s attire, and will have the opportunity to create their own ad posters, enjoy light refreshments, and chat with our archivists and librarians.

You won’t want to miss this exclusive peek at our archives—RSVP today!

About American Archives Month

October is American Archives Month, an opportunity for archives and archivists around the country to celebrate their work and raise public awareness about the value and accessibility of historical records. In conjunction with participating institutions throughout the Delaware Valley, the Delaware Valley Archivists Group has assembled an exciting calendar of events at Philadelphia’s most notable archives, special-collections libraries, repositories, and other cultural institutions.
