Event Details

The Tour:

A public tour of the Rare Book Department has been in operation since 1949. Rare book librarians on staff provide a basic introduction to the history of the book using the items from the collections, including cuneiform tablets, a section of a papyrus scroll, a medieval manuscript and a leaf from a Gutenberg Bible. The tour also includes a visit to our Elkins Room, the actual library of a former Free Library Trustee who was also a prominent book collector.
