Do you have a D.C. story? Come share it! On Saturday, April 7th, from 12-4 pm at the Anacostia Neighborhood Library, join us for a Pop-Up Museum: Your D.C. Stories 1968-2018.

This event is presented in partnership with Dr. Marya Annette McQuirter of the dc1968 project, as part of a series of opportunities to learn about local history and preserve family treasures.

What is it? A Pop-Up Museum is a one-day show created by you. Share your stories, save your family treasures and learn about D.C. happenings in 1968. We are highlighting Art, Activism, Music, Service and Everyday Life in D.C. Bring your postcards, flyers, protest signs, buttons, concert posters, records & tapes, ticket stubs, t-shirts, church bulletins, school yearbooks, newspapers, scrapbooks, photos from birthdays, graduations & more!

Participate and get advice on preservation from Special Collections staff, plus a free personal archiving kit to save your family treasures!

Don’t have an object to bring? You can share your story, make your own poster with an artist in residence and add your memory to our community map.

This event is part of the the DC Public Library People's University programming initiative commemorating the 50th anniversary of the events of 1968. Visit dclibrary.org/1968 for more great programs.

This event is free and open to all. You can pre-register at DC Public Library’s Facebook page and find more information on the Library calendar.
