Event Venue

We’ll gather, share ideas and plan Open Libraries in and around the Internet Archive, 300 Funston Avenue, San Francisco. Located in a former church, this temple of knowledge now houses petabytes of data.

Opening Night Party

Fanfare Zambaletta band plays on Archive front steps

We’ll kick off the Library Leaders Forum with a party including 800 friends. Wednesday, Oct 11, from 5-9:30 pm don’t miss the Internet Archive’s annual bash, 20th Century Time Machine.  We’re connecting the centuries, bringing 20th C. books, music, film, software and web pages to a new century of appreciative users. Come fall into your own personal rabbit hole with us.

Getting Around
