October Is American Archives Month!


Mission Viejo Public Library

Since our library, the Mission Viejo Public Library in Mission Viejo, California is also celebrating its tenth year in its current facilities, Reference Librarian Gayle Meldau and myself pulled photographs and articles from the Mission Viejo Local History Collection and created a display in the library. Photographs include various stages of building and groundbreaking ceremonies and the opening of the Heritage Room. Other items in the display include a bookmark and a small gold shovel embedded in glass from the groundbreaking ceremonies, a book about the architectural firm which has photographs of the interiors and exteriors of the library, and the most checked out book in the library!
