The Playboy Photo Library collection contains over 5 million photographic images and other related assets from over 60 years of Playboy Magazine, including both published items and outtakes. The Library continues to acquire thousands of digital files from current magazine shoots each month while overseeing the digitization of film assets as requested by both internal and external users. Originally located in Chicago, the collection moved to Beverly Hills in April of 2012 as part of a company-wide relocation and consolidation. Other historical sub-collections include photos from Hugh Hefner's personal "Scrapbook" and personnel & facilities images from the famous Playboy Clubs.

The tour will be followed by an on-site happy hour (must be 21 years old to attend). Space is very limited (only 9 spots available!). Please RSVP here: http://goo.gl/forms/PBofNQVJ2P. Further details and address will be provided by email.
