We are eager to share with you the incredible experiences we recently had with two remarkable organizations: the Grolier Club and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Their visits to the Library has not only inspired our community but also highlighted the limitless potential for discovery within our walls.

The Grolier Club, one of America's oldest societies for bibliophiles and enthusiasts in book art, graced us with their presence for a truly unforgettable day. Our staff had the pleasure of guiding them through our stacks, showcasing treasures that left them in awe. The passion and knowledge they brought to our Library were profound, and the engaging discussions that followed were a testament to the power of shared interests and the love for timeless literature.

Equally inspiring was the visit from the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. This renowned institution, dedicated to the advanced study of Greek antiquity, brought a delegation of administrators and students to explore our wide collection of books and artifacts. As they marveled at their organization’s personalized exposition and engaged in thought-provoking conversations with our docent and staff, it became clear that our Library is not just a repository but a catalyst for intellectual growth and collaboration.
