The Folger welcomes requests for guided tours focusing on a specific Library collection, for classes or small groups. Directed by Folger librarians, the tours can be tailored to the specific field of study of your students or group members. Availability is limited, two months’ advance notice is required, and tours are generally not given on Saturdays or outside normal reading room hours.
Please be advised that collection-focused tours are NOT being offered at this time due to our upcoming construction. For more information see the July 2019 letter to Folger readers from Kathleen Lynch, Executive Director, Folger Institute, and Greg Prickman, Eric Weinmann Librarian and Director of Collections. Updates about how this work affects reseachers will be shared on our During Construction webpage, in the Research Bulletin (subscribe), and on Twitter @FolgerResearch.
