    Is internet archive space at 300 Funston wheelchair accessible?
    We are planning to come & I looked at the street view & cannot figure out if there is an entrance sans stairs.

      there is a ramp outside leading up to the auditorium. staff will help by opening the door to get you in.


    Please pardon my off-topic, but could find no clear way to sign up for your newsletter.
    You clearly have your finger on the pulse of Internet freedom. Hope you can add me.
    Thanks and Namaste, NjW


    Mr. Barlow must have been one helluva guy. Would have been honored to have met him. IA is truly a wonder to behold. I will be with you in spirit on the 7th πŸ˜‰ NjW
