First Tuesdays at the Metro Archives


PLEASE NOTE: Beginning in January 2018, the Metro Archives will be moving its First Tuesday events from the Main Library to the meeting room in the Green Hills branch library. We are hoping that this change in venue will be more accommodating to our friends, and allow more people to attend without having to worry about issues with parking and driving in downtown traffic. The program will still be from 12:30-2:00pm. We hope to see you there in 2018!

Our "First Tuesdays at the Metro Archives" are always on the first Tuesday of the month, from 12:30 to 2:00 pm in the Commons Room on the third floor, West Wing of the Nashville Public Library. Our presentations feature a diverse group of speakers discussing various people, places, events, and traditions dealing with Nashville's history.
