Mark your calendars! On Saturday, April 14, we will be treated to a special tour of the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Rare Book Department, led by Katharine Chandler ’97. Katharine will show us a cuneiform tablet, an Egyptian book of the dead, a medieval book of hours, a leaf from a Gutenberg Bible, the Elkins Room, and more! While there, you can also check out the Charles Dickens exhibition, celebrating the author’s 200th birthday.
We’ll meet at 10:30 to begin the tour at 11am; please R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Please note, all visitors will be required to check coats and bags (including purses) when touring the precious collections. They will be held securely by Free Library staff.
