The California Historic Route 66 Association, in partnership with the Santa Monica Public Library, will host a Route 66 Information Fair on Saturday, October 5, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica. 

Route 66 experts from the California Historic Route 66 Association and a multitude of partner organizations will be on hand to share information and answer questions about Route 66 in Southern California and beyond. The organization is pleased to provide this opportunity as it furthers its mission to preserve, promote, educate, and entertain along the Route 66 corridor in California. 

The partnership with the Santa Monica Public Library and another with the Santa Monica History Museum celebrates Santa Monica as the westernmost terminus of Route 66, perhaps the best-known highway in the world. Participating organizations include: California Historic Route 66 Association, Santa Monica History Museum, Santa Monica Conservancy, Santa Monica Public Library, Museum of Neon Art, Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, Santa Monica Travel & Tourism, Discover Los Angeles, and Visit West Hollywood. 

The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible. For disability-related accommodations, call Library Administration at (310) 458-8606 at least one week prior to the event.
