Out of an abundance of caution regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic (and for other personal reasons as well) we are cancelling our March Public Meetup. We may reschedule this event and/or hold it virtually via a live-stream on our YouTube channel. We will keep you all posted about our upcoming meetup schedule. Thank you.

Anomaly Archives Closed Until Further Notice.
Our Meetups Are Cancelled Until Further Notice.
As you can surmise, the current Covid-19 Coronavirus crisis has had a significant effect upon the Anomaly Archives, much as it has impacted so many aspects of society. Things have been moving so fast it has been difficult to keep up and keep all of our supporters updated. The Anomaly Archives has been closed to the public since the Mayor’s March 17th announcement limiting gatherings and urging everyone to follow CDC guidelines for the safety of everyone and to “flatten the curve.”
As is happening across our society right now, beyond the dangers posed to our health, the ripple effects of this crisis are impacting our livelihoods at the personal, business, and community levels. The economic impacts to all levels are devastating; but Humanity can prevail if we all pull together, do what’s right and needs to be done, and help each other through these trying times.
Unfortunately, the Anomaly Archives has been immediately financially impacted by this crisis and so we too are among those institutions needing to ask for help. In the coming days, weeks, and months, the Anomaly Archives will be launching renewed fundraising campaigns to try and help us weather this storm and build for a sustainable future. We realize that many of you are likely personally in a similar situation of need and so we of course only ask for help from those who have it to safely give.
We’ll have more news soon on how you can help.
We will also be exploring several new online events as new regular programming and ongoing emergency fundraising efforts.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and especially your support through these trying times.

BELOW INFO IS OUT OF DATE AND PUBLIC MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE…
Second Saturday Monthly Meetups in 2020
The Anomaly Archives hosts a monthly public meeting the Second Saturday of each month. Meetings are 3pm-5pm so guests will have an hour before and an hour after to peruse the library and archives outside of the meeting times. The library will be open throughout its regular Saturday Open Hours from 2-6pm (so long as we have enough volunteers to staff it during the meeting). Sign up for our Meetup.com group for regular updates.
These monthly meetings are an opportunity for the public to learn more about the Anomaly Archives as well as for existing Lending-Library-Members to meet and discuss the latest Anomalous, Fortean, Mysterious, Paranormal, UFO, and Weird News Headlines (Check out our Flipboard online magazine links) and Events! Each meeting will feature some of the latest and most interesting anomalous news with insights gleaned from the Anomaly Archives collection of rare materials and its network of researchers.
Join Anomaly Archives founder SMiles Lewis as he introduces you to subjects you never knew existed and helps you dive deeper into topics you’ve always wanted to know more about. Beginning in March (and continuing every odd-numbered month) SMiles will lead discussion and exploration of the latest anomaly news items, with insights from books, periodicals, and other materials from within the Anomaly Archives collections. PLUS – there will be a number of guest lecturers throughout the year.
Every other meeting (even numbered months) will feature a brief presentation and discussion of the Anomaly ADVENTURE Club! Those meetings will be lead by “Viktor Criterion” and “Einida Ecxs” of Super Fun Adventure Quest Time (SFAQT). Viktor and Einida will lead attendees on a focused “expedition” exploring one of the many adventures they’ve experienced in researching the classic pulp magazine, “Adventure!“. This long-running magazine (1910-1971) created a travelers club card and “the popularity of the card amongst travelers led to the formation of” the legendary Adventurers Club of New York, which then led to similar clubs in Chicago, Los Angeles, Copenhagen and Honolulu. The Anomaly Archives endeavors to revive and inspire this sense of Wonder and Adventure (but more inclusively) …
“There beats in the hearts of many the yearning for adventure, and so, in 1911, to satisfy that need “Adventure!” magazine was created. It was filled with thrilling tales of travel, intrigue, and exotic occurrences.
It spawned a club of like-minded people who gathered to revel in the idea of adventure and all its tantalizing trappings — the Adventurer’s Club. Adventurers gathered every month to share stories of excitement and glory. Many interesting people have crossed the Club’s threshold, and it is high time that their stories be shared with a wider audience.”

There beats in the hearts of many the yearning for adventure, and so, in 1911, to satisfy that need “Adventure!” magazine was created. It was filled with thrilling tales of travel, intrigue, and exotic occurrences.
It spawned a club of like-minded people who gathered to revel in the idea of adventure and all its tantalizing trappings — the Adventurer’s Club. Adventurers gathered every month to share stories of excitement and glory. Many interesting people have crossed the Club’s threshold, and it is high time that their stories be shared with a wider audience.
One of these adventurers was once a household word and an American celebrity whose very name was a byword for all things exotic and thrilling. This was Frank Buck of Gainesville, Texas, an animal collector who cared so deeply about the animals he rounded up for zoos that his motto was, “Bring ‘em back alive.” His passion for animals led him to fame and fortune, movies and mayhem. The things he managed to do and experience in his lifetime will both astonish and amuse.
To find out more about this long-lost yet fascinating character from the recent past , please join us for “Bring ‘em Back Amused. The Tale of Frank Buck and his Monkey Mountain.”
The Anomaly Archives Adventurer’s Club meeting will be held from 3pm to 5 pm on Saturday, February 8th, 2020.
