Events and News:

Drop-In Day at Markham House
Tuesday, January 20, 10am–3pm

Edwin Markham House in History Park
1650 Senter Road, San José, CA 95112
Admission FREE
Free parking in the Staff/Volunteer lot on Phelan Avenue.
Please enter History Park from the Phelan Avenue side.

the Edwin Markham House at History Park will be open for writers and readers to drop in and use the resources there. Those of you who have been there know that it is a peaceful place to sit, read, write, and study. You will have access to the 1,360-volume Naomi Clark Library upstairs (if you are a PCSJ member, you also have borrowing privileges). This is primarily for individual study. Discussions with others are good also, as long as it does not interfere with the quiet atmosphere we want to foster.

We are planning to do this sort of Drop-In more often – perhaps once or twice a month on a weekday, and one weekend day per month. There is no need to RSVP, but if you need more information, you can call 408.368.0353.
