Three quick announcements about PPL Special Collections:
First, our weekly tour for this Friday (August 4th) is cancelled, but we’ll be starting up again next week (the 11th). Just stop by at 3pm any Friday for a free introduction to some of our amazing treasures.
Second, construction has begun here at the library, part of which involves closing off the stairway leading to the third floor. You can still get here by taking the elevator to level 3 and then heading to the right.
Third, as a reward for those who make the journey past the construction, we’re starting a rotating weekly mini-exhibition of two items from the collection on a theme. This week’s topic is the Olympics, and we’ve got two items (a 1790s map of London and a guide to gymnastics from 1851) on display in the case by the entrance.
So stop by (just not this Friday) and take an analog look at some of the things mentioned here on the blog.
