Friday Tours

See our Calendar of Events to sign up for a tour date. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with parking and additional information.

Tours of the Library are offered on Fridays at 11:00 am. We will start in the new meeting room downstairs, where a library staff member will show a presentation about the Library's history, collections, and the recent building renovation. We will conclude in the Avenir Foundation Reading Room. Presentations are approximately 45-60 minutes in length with an opportunity for exhibit viewing at the end. Please allow ample time for parking and to view the exhibits afterwards.
