Big and Small, Books for All: Hands-On

Now through Wed, March 21, 2018 5:30 P.M. Add to your calendar
Rare Book Department at Parkway Central Library

Join us after-hours  in the Rare Book Department as we take out books that were just too large (or too small!) to be shown in our Big and Small, Books for All exhibition. Examples include a Bible smaller than your finger nail, and a handwritten scroll from the 15th century over fifteen-feet long that belonged to  King Edward IV (1442–1483) that claims to trace his family history all the way back to the biblical Adam.  

No reservations are required, so please pop in! .
