June 9. International Day of Archives.

The Association of Latin American Archives (ALA) chose the hash tag #ArchivosParaLaGente  (archives for the people) to commemorate June 9, the International Day of Archives. The hashtag was chosen because people are the reason archives exist. Archives and museums all over the world are preparing special events to commemorate the significance of archives for people on June 9. Spanish archives will have special tours to their repositories: Archives in Guadalajara, Museo Canario and Archivo Histórico Provincial de Las Palmas.
