Dear OGS Members,

Lambton County Archives will be hosting a reopening celebration in recognition of our recently completed renovation project! Archives members and the public are invited to the facility at 787 Broadway Street in Wyoming from 1:00 - 3:30 p.m., Friday, July 21. The project included the installation of two new mobile shelving systems which more than doubled the Archives' capacity in the collections storage areas.  Storage space for special oversized materials, such as framed pictures, posters, and scrapbooks, was also added.

Since we receive approximately 100 donations of historical material every year, we need space to be able to grow. This renovation project has provided us with that additional room.

Our collection was housed offsite over a six week period while the project was undertaken, but complete access has now been restored. Thanks to everyone for your patience while our material was offsite!

The reopening celebration will include behind-the-scenes tours of the newly renovated collections storage areas. This is a rare opportunity to tour areas that are normally closed to the public. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to speak with Archives staff and learn more about the newly added space and the rich collection of historical material available. Refreshments will be provided.

The renovation project is funded by the County of Lambton and the Government of Canada's Cultural Spaces Fund.

I hope to see you on July 21!

Best regards,

Dana Thorne
