What’s your personal rabbit hole?
78 rpm recordings?
20th Century women writers?
Educational films from the 50s?
Find out at the Internet Archive’s Annual Bash:
The Internet Archive invites you to enter our 20th Century Time Machine to experience the audio, books, films, web sites, ephemera and software fast disappearing from our midst. We’ll be connecting the centuries—transporting 20th century treasures to curious minds in the 21st. Come explore the possibilities at our annual bash on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, from 5-9:30 pm.
We’ll kick off the evening with cocktails, food trucks and hands-on demos of our coolest collections. Come scan a book, play in a virtual reality arcade, or spin a 78 rpm recording. When you arrive, be sure to get your library card. If you “check out” all the stations on your card, we’ll reward you with a special Internet Archive gift.
Starting at 7 p.m., we’ll unveil the latest media the Internet Archive has to offer, presented by the artists, writers, and scientists who lose themselves in our collections every day. And to keep you dancing into the evening, DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus, will once again be spinning records from 8-9:30. Come join our celebration!
