The materials held at the Folger Shakespeare Library are meant to be actively used; Henry Folger once called the collection “a fine kit of tools for scholars.”
Although our Reading Room is currently closed due to a major building renovation project, we remain committed to assisting researchers in their work. The Reading Room will reopen along with the rest of the building in 2024.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is any research or reference support we can provide during this time, and at email@example.com if you have questions about our ongoing scholarly programs and fellowships.
