2018-19 Annual Report Image Credits

The Folger Shakespeare Library is fortunate to have its many programs and activities documented by a talented group of photographers. They help us capture our happy times and proud accomplishments—and the many artists, teachers, students and their families, scholars, supporters, and friends who make all that we do possible. Thank you.
