Archie comic memorabilia now on display at library

The extensive Archie memorabilia collection on display is on loan from Nancy Silberkleit, co-CEO of Archie Comics. It is a personal collection of everything from Archie lunch boxes, buttons, games and music to cosmetics, clothing, figurines and watches that she acquired during years scouring antique stores and bidding in online auctions. The exhibit includes Silberkleit’s Archie journal at the library front desk, where people are encouraged to add their memories of Archie to the roving exhibit.
