DELAWARE COUNTY 2017 ARCHIVES CRAWL

October is American Archives Month – an opportunity to raise awareness about the value of archives. Delaware County area repositories are sponsoring a month long October Crawl event. Each of the host repositories has its own unique collection full of interesting pieces of local history. Take this opportunity to visit some of these repositories and learn about the information they preserve. The goal of the Archives Crawl is to visit as many of the participating repositories as possible during the month of October and have each of them stamp your passport. Crawlers who visit at least five participating repositories could win a gift bag of items donated by each repository. Passports can be obtained from the Delaware County Records Center website or any of the participating repositories (except for the Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial) starting October 1, 2017. Passports will be due November 1, 2017 by 8:30am to a participating repository to determine gift bag winners.
