Library archives a stop on Doors Open tour

Items from the library archives.
Deep in the basement of the Leddy Library lies a fascinating collection of manuscripts, photographs, and special published works. These archives will welcome the public to see historical highlights spanning from the 1600s to the 2000s during Doors Open Windsor.

The free event invites local residents to be tourists in their own city and features 30 sites to visit Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24 and 25.

The campus library’s Rare Books, Archives and Special Collection will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, giving visitors a chance to see a selection of books, photographs, and original handwritten documents reflecting the history of Southwestern Ontario and the art of book publishing since the invention of the printing press.
