Acquisitions Night: February 5, 2015

Got your tickets yet? Acquisitions Night is just over a week away! This once-a-year event directly supports the growth of the collection by giving people the chance to “adopt” selected items acquired over the past year—that is, reimburse the purchase price to the library so that more material can be purchased. Attend in person to enjoy a buffet dinner, talk with Folger staff, and examine almost one hundred new items with your own eyes (you’re under no obligation to adopt). Can’t make it in person? It’s also possible to adopt online.

Although you can’t take adopted items home with you, you’re free to come visit them in the future. You will also be acknowledged in the item’s Hamnet record, if you wish. Looking for a gift for the person who has everything? Why not adopt?

Prices start as low as $250. All adoptions are fully tax deductible.
