Thank you to the many friends and supporters who gathered on Thursday, February 21 for Acquisitions Night 2013. With your generosity, we raised more than $63,000 in support of the Folger Shakespeare Library’s core program of acquiring new materials for our world-class collection.
Acquisitions Night is the library's annual benefit for the collection where you are invited to browse and adopt recent additions to the Folger collection.
Guests can examine more than 70 rare books, manuscripts, and works of art that have been added to the collection in the past year. Folger curators, conservators, and librarians are on hand to answer questions.
A buffet dinner is served in the Great Hall, where guests can enjoy the spring exhibition.
Support the Library's acquisitions program by adopting a rare item acquired for the Folger collection. Adopted items receive a bookplate identifying you or the person you wish to honor. Online adoptions available year round!
Not able to adopt this year?
