William L. Clements Library

Exhibits and Events

The Clements Library showcases its collections with regular exhibits presented in the Avenir Reading Room and with online exhibits. Drawing on a wealth of primary source material, including rare books, manuscripts, maps, prints, and photographs, the Library's exhibits offer unique views of American history from the Age of Discovery into the twentieth century.

Exhibits are open to the public on Fridays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and by special arrangement. The exhibit area is closed during research hours on Monday through Thursday. Access to the Avenir Reading Room is through the south entrance of the Library facing South University Avenue.
