Use the Collection


Although the Reading Room itself is open only to scholars and other qualified researchers, there are many other ways in which the general public may see and enjoy the Folger’s resources.  If you want to apply to be a reader, go to Reader Information and Research Fellowships for more information.


Here in Washington? You can enjoy our free exhibitions, use the interactive, on-site Shakespeare Gallery to view hundreds of other images from the collection, attend concerts, plays, and readings in the theater, tour the building, and participate in programs for children.
