Municipal Archives Orientations
Visit Using the Archives for information on scheduling special programs in the Archives.
Archives Alive! are archives orientation sessions targeting youth grades 1-12 in order to introduce them to using primary sources. The programs are designed for teachers who would like to bring their students into City Hall for a field trip, would like to schedule for a City archivist to conduct the program in the classroom, or teachers can use the materials on their own. To schedule a field trip or in classroom visit with an archivist please contact Kelly Zacovic at Kzacovic@savannahga.gov or (912) 651-4212.
