Description:

As part of the exciting 50th Anniversary celebrations for the Kelly Library, alumni and their guests are invited to exclusive behind-the scenes-tours of the library during the Alumni Reunion 2019 weekend. This is your chance to discover how we conserve manuscripts from the middle ages, see how our antique printing presses work, explore the rare book room, and see how Canada’s current bookbinders still use historical technique to create great works of art.

Thursday, May 30
10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Friday, May 31
10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Tours will begin at the first floor circulation desk and proceed to the new Conservation Studio, then move through the Print Room, Archives and Rare Books area, and will end back on the first floor with the Canadian Fine Press Exhibition.

This is your opportunity for a sneak peek to see the wonderful collections and features of the Kelly Library. Space is limited for each tour, so be sure to book early. To register for the free tours, please visit the Eventbrite page.
