Houghton Library Tour 2: A Tour of Houghton Library

Tour Date: Thurs, 3/31, 2:00pm–3:30

Tour Location: Lobby of Houghton Library, Harvard University (in Harvard Yard, near Quincy St. and Massachusetts Ave.).

Public Transportation stop nearby: Harvard Square T (Red Line).

Tour Leader: Dennis C. Marnon, Administrative Officer

Tour Description: Houghton Library is Harvard’s principal rare book and special collections library. This 90-minute tour provides an introduction to the history of the library, its holdings and programs, and access to historic rooms that are normally behind the scenes. A special selection of Renaissance books and manuscripts will be assembled for participants to examine firsthand.

Reminders: Each member may sign up for only one tour. All tours are free of charge. Tour participants are generally expected to provide their own transportation to and from the tour; the Boston College tour is an exception in that it will offer a shuttle bus. Typically the tours fill very quickly, and there is not room for everyone to attend. If you sign up for a tour and find that you cannot attend, please notify the RSA so that someone else can take your place.
